I did a mistake when filling up my w-4 employement
application form for one of my jobs and I guess I chose not
to pay taxes.Therefore, when I got the w-2 from the
employer, it had no wages in box 1. It does have Social
Security wages, the social security tax withheld, Medicare
wages, and the medicare tax withheld (which are boxes 3, 4,
5, and 6) and all the other boxes are empty except 15 which
mentions the name of the State.

I am trying to e-file my taxes using turbotax. Since the
wages is blank it does not allow me to leave it blank and
turbotax says to put 0 in there for now. After I was done
filling in other w-2 forms, I realized that the total income
is not what it is supposed to be because of no wages in one
of my w-2's.

Is it okay to file like this? I read some forums saying that
they don't allow to e-file when you have 0 wages in one of
the W2's. Some even suggest to put 1 dollar in box 1, is
that allowed? What would be the correct way to file the tax?
I don't owe any taxes. I am in fact going to get a little
bit of return since I had paid taxes on other W2s.

I would really appreciate your help and concern in resolving
this issue. Thank you very much.

Unless you put 100% of your pay into a 401(k) at that
employer, the W-2 is wrong. Regardless of whether any
income tax was withheld, Box 1 on the W-2 shows your gross
taxable wages. Get it fixed.

I have another question. Could I use the same w-2 form with
blank wages, then fill the amount that needs to go in box 1
and file the taxes. This will show the right total of the
wages earned when adding up all the w-2s. Is this a legible
solution?

Thanks for your response
Jason

You can try. If you're trying to save time, getting it
fixed is probably faster.

Phil Marti had the only solution. The W2 has a serious
error and needs to be fixed. The absence of entry other
than 2 thru 6 means that nothing was diverted to savings
either.
