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?

Good morning, @cwhaleybugman. I'm here to provide more information on the W-2 tax forms.

 

To find the amount you need to enter into Box 12, using Codes DD and FF, then you'll need to run a Payroll Details report. Here's how:

  1. Go to Reports on the left-hand menu.
  2. In the Search Bar, type in Payroll Details.
  3. You can edit the report by pressing the Customize button at the top-right of this page. Make sure the date runs for the entire year.

For more information on this type of report, click here.

 

Employees don't have to report the cost of coverage under an employer-sponsored group health plan that may be shown on their Form W-2, in Box 12, using Code DD. The amount reported doesn't affect tax liability, as the value of the employer contribution continues to be excludable from an employee’s income, and isn't taxable. This reporting is for informational purposes only, to show employees the value of their health care benefits. Here's an article that goes more into detail: W-2 form boxes explained.

 

For employer contributions, they'll be reported in Box 12, using Code W.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Monday!

I need to correct the 2019 w2 as I did not add the 12DD and 12 FF info. What does the 12DD include.  So the company pays 50% and the employee pays 50%.  Do I just add the the employee share or BOTH employee and company health ins.  OR just the employee.  

I also have employees doing the 125 Cafeteria plan the might need to go in BOX 10.  But in it does not show up in the w2.  Do I need to fix some settings?  All help would be much appreciated.

Hi there,

 

Box 12 in the W-2 form is the total amount of the Taxability of pay types and deductions. To verify the results in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account:

  1. Go to the Reports menu.
  2. Select the Payroll Details report and run the report for the entire year.
  3. Make sure the items used on paychecks are set up correctly and the correct amounts were used.

You can also check this article for more details: W-2 form boxes explained.

 

Also, you might want to open your QBO account on a private window and access your W-2 from there. This way, we can check if the issue is due to stored data cache in your browser. Thus, you're unable to view the Box 10.

 

Too much data stored in the browser can cause unusual behavior to the browser that can affect the performance of your QBO. To start, you can use these keyboard shortcuts to open a private or incognito window:

  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: Command + Option + P 

If you're able to view Box 10 in the W-2 in a private window, then we'll need to clear your regular browser's cache. This will also help your browser to function efficiently.

 

However, If the issue persists, try using another browser. This way, we can see and check if this a browser-related issue.

 

You might want to check this article that can guide you on how to print W-2 forms in QBO.

 

Know that you're always welcome to post here anytime you have other concerns and questions. I'll be here to assist you. Take care!
