Where do I find the $ amount to enter into W2 box 12 DD and 12FF?

Do I add the employee deductions for health care cost? Where do employer contributions go?

Where do I find the $ amount to enter into W2 box 12 DD and 12FF?

Hi mildred-gaughan,

 

If you've set up the health contributions as a deduction, you can find the amount by running a report. You can either use the Payroll Details or Payroll Deductions/Contributions report.

 

Here are the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Reports.
  2. Type Payroll Details or Payroll Deductions/Contributions in the search box.
  3. Select the Date range, and click Run Report.

You can also find more details in this article: Reporting Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage.

 

Once you have the information, you can enter the contribution amount by following these steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Taxes.
  2. Choose Payroll Tax.
  3. Under Form, click the Annual Forms link.
  4. Click the W-2, Copies B,C & 2 link.
  5. On the Printable Employee Copies: Form W-2 page, click the go here link next to If you're required to report Health Coverage on Form W-2.
  6. Enter the total amount paid in 2018 by both the employer and the employee.
  7. Click Continue.

This will populate the amount on box 12 with code DD in the W-2 form. 

 

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions about QuickBooks. Thanks.

Hello,

 

I have QB Desktop and do not know how to enter health insurance in box 12 DD.  We have less than 250 employees.

Hello there, Saucy Lisa,

 

You can set up and track your Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage using the tax tracking type, Health Coverage Cost. This is the tax tracking type mae to track the cost of the coverage which will then report on employees' Forms W-2 in box 12, code DD.

 

You can check this step-by-step guide to help you set up the payroll item for tacking: Health Coverage Reporting User Guide for QuickBooks.

 

You can also refer to this article for more information: QuickBooks Desktop Payroll: Reporting Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage Cost on Form W-2.

 

Let me know if you have questions about the process, I'm just a reply away.
