The following critical e-file diagnostic for Indiana generates:
e-file: Form W-2 #X: Locality name is missing. (ref. #6073)
The taxpayer does not have a locality name listed on their W-2.
Indiana will reject the return with error code 0024 if the W-2 input is missing the locality name.
2016/ 2017/ 2018
- If there is not a locality name listed on the W-2, put an entry of "-1" in screen 10, boxes 18 and 19 or -1 in Box 20 for IN.
- If there is a locality name, enter it in both Box 18 and 19 in screen 10.
Important: Be sure to include the residence county and work county in Screen 3 under the "Indiana Miscellaneous" section for both Taxpayer and Spouse (if MFJ).
If either Taxpayer or Spouse are unemployed or retired, enter the county code of residence in both work and residence fields.
