I have a client who worked for the military and he has a V in Box 14. Does anyone know what this is for? I have seen the questions on a W in Box 14 but I don't see anything about a V.

"Box 14—Other. ...You also may use this box for any other information that you want to give to your employee. Label each item."

The emplyer should explain any amounts in box 14 and whatever code they chose to use.

Box 14 Code V appears to be Pretax Federal Employee Health Benefit Incentive on a military W-2

Military Tax Matters lists the box 14 codes for military W-2's.

Need to go to http://militarytaxmatters.com/W2andLES.html - Box 14 Codes are not same as Box 12 Codes. Dept of defense is closing a base here in NJ and relocating employees to VA so some of these are showing up for a few of my clients.
