To “catch up the year” to reflect the amounts paid on the employee’s behalf for the payrolls already paid during 2013, click EDIT, then enter the TOTAL YTD HEALTH CARE paid by the employer in the CMP AMT box before running your next payroll. After the payroll is finished, repeat step 1 in this section, then enter the normal amount paid on the employee’s behalf. If the employee’s status changes during the year, change the amount in this box to the new amount the employer pays. What is printed on the W-2s The Health Care Cost and the Tax Code, DD, will be printed in one of the "Box 12" boxes (there are 4 boxes available and, usually, deferred compensation or retirement is printed in the boxes). The amount printed will be a combination of the amounts your employees paid toward their health insurance and the amounts you, as the employer, paid. These two figures, added together, should equal the total amount paid to the insurance company(ies) for health insurance during the year. Health Insurance Paid in-full by Employer; no health insurance deduction code After calculating your W-2s for 2013, you will need to edit each W-2 to reflect the amount you, as the employer, paid for each employee’s health insurance. Explain to your Employees what this is all about The amount reported does not affect tax liability, as the value of the employer excludible contribution to health coverage continues to be excludible from an employee's income, and it is not taxable. This reporting is for informational purposes only, to show employees the value of their health care benefits. You can learn more about Pro Fund Accounting here.
