When entering Box 6 Form SSA-1099, Lacerte is requiring a federal identification number. No such number exists for the SSA. How do I circumvent the critical diagnostic?

This has been fixed in Lacerte:

Voluntary federal income tax withheld (SSA-1099/ RRB-1099)

Social Security Benefits Screen 14; Code 38


Enter any federal income tax withheld from an SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 in this field.

NOTE: Do not use the “Federal income tax withheld [A]” field (codes 14 and 64) in this screen to enter SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 withholding any longer.
