Yesterday a guy who just got back from Iraq on Satruday dropped off a w-2 from the National Gaurd. It shows a wopping $21,000 in box 12 as ""W"". This seems to be really outlandish. anyone seen this before with the Guard?? He needs to pull this out before the 15th doesn,t He?? or is there some exeption for the armed forces. Whats really strange is he shows the same amount for taxable social security wages, as if he didn't take a dime in cash pay.

Most likely, this was related to non-taxable combat pay and should be in box 14. I had to amend a previous tax return where they used W as HSA contributions when it was combat pay.
