1040 - Additional Withholding on Return



1040 line 25 (line 17 in Drake19, line 16 in Drake18, line 64 in Drake17 and prior) is showing more withholding than the total of the W2 withholding amounts. Why?


Withholding amounts flow to line 25 from:

  • Form W-2, box 2
  • Form W-2G, 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.
