Employers may use this box to report information such as state disability insurance taxes withheld, union dues, uniform payments, health insurance premiums deducted, nontaxable income, educational assistance payments, or a member of the clergy's parsonage allowance and utilities.

Depending what information is reported - it may or may not be reported on your tax return as deduction or for other reasons.

In general and in most situations - that is optional information and is not separately reported.

Let me know if you need help with interpretation.
