*Almost* duplicate W2s

Hello all,

I am filing single in NYC. I have 11 W2's. Of these, two of them are ALMOST exactly the same. In fact, the ONLY things that are different are:

-the descriptions in the "earnings summary" section.
-box 12 (one has a D and L classification, the other just the L, but of the same amount).
-the state is different (box 15) along with a different state employer ID number, and values in boxes 16 (state wages) and 17 (state tax).

Please note that I did do some work in Maryland (hence the different state in box 15).

My question:
Do I have to submit/enter in BOTH of these W2's? Or just one of them? Entering them both (federal wages from box 1/3/5) makes my gross income considerably higher.

Any help is greatly appreciated

#1;Your ER in Maryland must have withheld taxes from paychecks in Maryland to Maryland and IRS and you can claim the taxes that you paid to Maryland as a nonresident of Maryland, I guess, of Maryland on your NYS return.

#2; Basically, all W-2 income is reported on the Federal Return on our 1040 line 7. It sounds like MD needs to be filed as a nonresident with the dates of residency listed on the State Tax Return. Check your W-2s at the bottom for State withholding. As said, all of your earnings are taxable in NYS and in Mryland . NYS will give you credit for the tax you pay to Maryland, limited to the proportion of your Maryland tax liability that relates to the NYS source income. Generally (until you get to very high income levels) the NYS tax will be higher than the Maryland tax.

Hello Wnhough, thank you so much for the reply, and also the great information

But forgive me if I still don't understand what to do. Should I enter in this "duplicate" W2? I did some searching around, and according to this, it seems like I should omit it:

"Generally, only file one W-2 if:
...Your employer issued more than one W-2 to report employment in different states. Caution: Many people duplicate their income when given W-2s for multiple states."

https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/19...-multiple-w-2s

But then if I don't include this, I don't know how to appropriately report my MD income...??

sorry, no need to report same wage reported on the duplicate w2.
