w2 help

[ Edited ]

I received 3 w2s from one employer. The only problem is, only one of them is completely filled out. The other two are only filled out boxes 18-20. I have already tried filing them seperately as well as together. They cant be filed halfway blank, nor with the same information more than once. I got error messages every time. Can anyone assist me on what I need to do? It would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hello 92614


I'm guessing that you are in Ohio, one of the few places where this is common.  What you need to do is enter the first W-2, the complete one, but at the end add another city, then enter the information in boxes 18 to 20 and repeat  for each city. Unfortunately I have had some reports that a few of the tax programs can't handle more than a few additional city taxes, there seems to be a limit of 6 to 8 cities. This is caused by working in multiple cities with the same employer.


Hope this helped.
