I have employees who have pre-taX and after tax AFLAC INSURANCE from their weekly check , now I am printing thier w-2 forms but i do not see the amount deduct through the year I need to know which is the correct box and code for this insurance and which accounts affect, i really need help
Typicaly pre-tax should go into box 12 subject to FICA but not federal taxes.
After tax should go into box 14 subject to federal taxes and FICA.
However, please tell me more about this.
Do you know for certain if your plan is a qualified plan? It sounds like it is, but I need to know if it is a qualified section 125 plan. If you do not know, please give the person a call who helped set this up for you and find out.
What do you mean by accounts affect?
what software do you use for payroll and accounting?
about your first question I do not know but we are using Quickbooks probably when we create the payroll item was incorrect because the w-2 don not show nothing in box 12 or 14. Mr Johnson please help mi is my first time with this thing and I have to give to the employees their w-2
have you already sent the W-3's and transmittals to the IRS?
Which quickbooks version do you have?
no yet Mr Johnson, I want to be sure that everything is ok before we send the W-3
OK so tell me what version of Quckbooks are you using?
I am working on your answer. I appreciate your patience.
Can you tell me if you are filing as an S-corp? And are you or anyother share holders 2% owners?
IS AND LLC AND WITH 2 OWNERS CEO 60% AND COO 40%
I have been asked by the other expert to assist you with your question.
Are the owners also the employees and having health insurance premiums deducted? Are they on payroll? Is the LLC filing as a partnership or as a S Corp?
NO THEY NOT, THEY ARE NOT IN PAYROLL, THEY FILLING 1065
Pre-tax insurance payment from the payroll will not be subhect to FICA, Medicare or federal withholding and hence you will not see that on W-2 wages box 1, box 3 or box 5.
After tax insurance premiums will be deducted from the payroll and will be subject to FICA, medicare and federal withholding. There is no tax benefits to such deductions. So this would be included in box 1. box 3 and box 5. It may or may not be reported as additional information on Box 14.
When you set it up in Quickbooks-
Pre-tax premiums will be set up under payroll items as Insurance premium-health- pre-tax
Post tax premiums will be set up under payroll items as insurance premium-health-after tax
If you have payroll subscription in your Quickbooks and if the payroll items are correctly set up than the W-2 should be correct in most cases
Let me know if you have any question.
