Cost of Employer Sponsored Health Coverage

Nina Tchistiakova Updated by Nina Tchistiakova

An income item is provided by the program to track the Cost of Employer Sponsored Health Coverage. To add this item for an employer, go to the Payroll Setup tab on the Edit Employer/Payer Information screen. Under the Income Items list click the Add button. Scroll down the Full Name list to find Cost of Health. See Income Items for more information on adding income items.

The Cost of Health income item provided is not really an income but allows the employer to track the cost with each paycheck and to summarize the total amount on Form W-2, Box 12, Code DD. It is not subject to any taxes or deductions and will not be added to net pay so it doesn't affect the amount of the check or taxes in any way.
