Where does one report the wages of a statutory employee (Box 1 of W-2 form) who is eligible for a 199-A deduction?

How can I report all of the income earned for 199-A purposes?  Taxpayer as a statutory employee receives a W-2 but also has Schedule C income form his insurance sales.  The QBI worksheet at the end of Schedule C uses only the net income form Schedule C and none of the W-2 statutory income.

Nothing surprising in that because QBI is not based on gross income and has to be adjusted for deductions that are attributable to that qualified ToB.

Did you link the input for the statutory employee W-2 to the correct Sch C?

Also, if your client also received 1099-MISC income, that probably belongs to another ToB and should be reported on a different Sch C along with the related expenses, which may require allocation.
