Right it says:
Under box 14 it says, that the amount for 414 h will be added to determine amount for State taxes.
Not "is already added to determine amount for State taxes"
I email this site this morning, before I asked Just Answer.Tax
This is what they said.

If you are not a New York State employee, you should contact discuss this matter with your personnel/payroll office. It is their responsibility to get instructions from the NYS Department of Taxation
and Finance for proper completion of the Form W-2 State Wages box.
If you are a New York State employee, please let us
know your employing agency.

Subject W2 Question
I work for a government agency
Box 1 has $36,000
Box 14 has $1,000 414 (H)
Box 16 has $37,000
I think box 16 should be $36,000
I did look on your website and the example and explanation are for 2006 W2's so the payroll director thinks this year is different and the 414H should be inculded in box 16 on the W2.
Would you please advise?
I wish I had a website that is the end processor of W2's to confirm that box 16 should include the 414H. It bothers me it has not in the past, this year it does.
