If it was from an employer wouldnt it be on a W2? 

If it was from the state, it should be on a 1099g like unemployment.

What type of document do you have reporting the PFL?

It is on form W2. My confusion is that I have a client that is getting an itemized deduction, and I do not know where Lacerate wants me to add PFL for it to be counted on the state tax deduction

PFL in box 14 is not a tax at all.  It's the amount of COVID wages paid.  Unless your client is also self-employed it has no bearing on the return.  If your client is self-employed it will go on Form 7202 line 15 or line 16 and affect the calculation for the self-employed amount of the credit.

Edit: Phoebe had a better crystal ball than I did. 🙂

Yep, it's a California employer. Sorry for the confusion. I sometimes forget how important these small details have to the overall question when it comes to tax.

Are you referring to the credit for the Self Employed, on Form 7202?
