1040 line 16 (line 64 in Drake17 and prior) is showing more withholding than the total of the W2 withholding amounts. Why?
Withholding amounts flow to line 16 from:
- Form W2, box 2
- Form W2G, box 4
- Form 1099-R, box 4
- Form 1099-G, box 4
- Form 1099-DIV, box 4
- Form 1099-INT, box 4
- Form 1099-MISC, box 4
- Form SSA-1099, box 6
- Form 8959, Additional Medicare Tax, line 24
- Schedule K-1 (for example, backup withholding)
See the Form 1040 Instructions for more information.
There is also a data entry point on screen 5, Payments, for 1099 federal withholdings not reported elsewhere.
Beginning in Drake16, there is a Federal Withholding worksheet that shows a detailed list of all federal withholding.
