14880: CO - EF Message 0022


I am getting a Colorado red message 0022. How can I clear this EF message?

CO EF message 0022 reads:

As mentioned in the EF message text, any income reported on a Form W2 as local wages is generally considered occupational taxes, rather than local wages that would be reported on a local tax return. If the income is reported on the W2 in the locality section, it may be incorrectly reported on the Schedule A, line 5. If you are receiving this EF message, return to the W2 Wages screen in federal data entry and remove the locality information.


In Drake17 and prior, if the occupational taxes need to be reported on the tax return, they can be entered on the federal A Itemized Deductions Schedule screen on line 21. 

For more information, see the CO Form 104 Instruction Booklet.
