The feds are asking...

The feds are asking for a verification code from box 9 on my husbands W2.

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

However, box 9 is blank. What do I do?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

His W2 from 2016 had a code, but not one from 2015!

If your husband still works for the same company, you can possibly use the verification code from last year. Based on the following information, the verification code is an identifier for the W2 data submitted on your return. SEE BELOW:

----------------------------

Box 9. If you are e-filing and if there is a code in this box, enter it when prompted by your software. The only valid characters are the letters A-F and the digits 0-9. This code assists the IRS in validating the W-2 data submitted with your return. The code is not entered on paper-filed returns.
