Troubleshooting individual diagnostic ref. 6665 military combat pay

SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte Tax17Updated July 13, 2022

The following critical diagnostic is generating in Lacerte:

e-file: Military Combat Pay was reported on form W-2 but no special Military Processing for a member of the U.S. Armed Forces was indicated in the E-file Miscellaneous input screen (Screen 4.4). (ref. #6665)

This diagnostic generates when there's a W-2 with nontaxable combat pay (code Q).

Follow these steps to resolve the diagnostic:

  1. Go to Screen 4, Electronic Filing.
  2. Select E-file PDF/Miscellaneous from the left navigation panel.
  3. Locate the Miscellaneous section.
  4. Select the applicable option from the Special military processing (Ctrl+T) dropdown menu.
  5. Enter the Date combat zone entered.

After completing these entries, the diagnostic will disappear. If you don't have this information, you'll need to paper file the return.
