  • I put 0 in the boxes instead of leaving them blank and now it won't allow me to continue.  what do I do?
  • Delete the W-2 and start over entering it.
  • how do you delete it?
  • Click on Federal Taxes, Wages and Income, Explore on My Own. Click on Update after Wages and Salaries and edit or delete the W-2 that is incorrect.

Map your W-2 over to TurboTax box to box as it is entered on your W-2. If there is no entry in box 2 for federal tax withholding, leave the box blank in TurboTax.

    No. OASDI is the official government name for what is commonly called social security.  It is short for "Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance".  Government payrolls use the abbreviation OASDI in the withholding descriptions on payroll instead of labeling the withholding as social security withholding.  Other employers may use this abbreviation as well. It would appear that no Federal taxes were withheld from your salary and zero is correct.
    • I just got an amended w2 from 2011.  2011 claimed 0 fitw but now on the amended i show they took $1411.  is it even worth filing the amendment for 2011?

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
