My W2 has no wages reported, just non-taxable disability insurance

This answer was rated:

My W2 has no wages reported, just non-taxable disability insurance payments. I can't seem to e-file with a W2 having no wages. Can I omit sending W2 with 1040 (married filing jointly) since there are no wages, or alternately, can I plug 1.00 in the wage box to be able to e-file?

Hello JA Customer,

 

If the W-2 you were issued has no taxable wages reported in box 1 of that form, and also assuming they show that no taxes were withheld from your benefits, then you do not even need to report this form on your return.
