W2 Duplication - Form 4852

i have a customer who had 2 employers who closed down and did not provide a W2, he has his last paycheck stubs.  The IRS advised to use form 4852, the system will not permit us to add 2 W2's, only the first one added is being accepted and added to his income ... any suggestions ??

Also, the form populates to "1099" and to use the W2, i had to override the fields

To add a second W-2, you click on the + sign next to the tab of the first W-2 you created with the name of that employer.  To enter the details for F.4852, you need to click on the tiny prints in grey above the screen title Details: Wages, Salaries, Tips (W-2) appended with the name of the employer.

Did you follow these steps?  If so, what happened?

Could you explain what you mean by 'the form populates to "1099"'?  If you followed the steps outlined above, it will be treated as W-2 entries with F.4852 and not as 1099 and no override would be necessary.

Please try again and let us know how it goes.
