Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Certain pretax deduction will reduce amount in box 1 (401K, 403 deductions) and certain deductions (medical, dental, HSA) will reduce all 3 boxes. Usually, box 12 is used to list the pretax deductions and a specific code is used. But that's not always the case. Sometimes the deductions are listed in box 14, usually without the codes.
