W-2 Box 12 Code DD: QuickBooks Payroll Items are not populating correctly

According to the IRS, the Employee Deduction should ALWAYS be included with the Employer Contribution when using the Code DD in Box 12.  


Therefore, our question:

  • Will Intuit be correcting its Payroll Items such that the Employee Health Insurance withholdings amount is reported IN ADDITION TO the Employer Contribution for Health Insurance, in conformity with the IRS directions?

Right now the QuickBooks Payroll Item for the Employer Health Insurance Contribution populates Box 12 with a Code DD, but the Employee Withholding does not.



In general, the amount reported should include both the portion paid by the employer and the portion paid by the employee.
