How Do I Report Income from Employee Union Dues on a W-2 Form?

Report income from your business’s employee union dues in Box 14 “Other” on a W-2 form. Box 14 has multiple purposes. Use the allotted space to report additional tax or income information if your business must file it or record it for informational purposes. Employers may use the box for what they deducted for State Disability Insurance taxes. Your business can also use it to report any union dues that the Internal Revenue Service regards as tax deductible.

Label items entered into Box 14 with a code to describe the item. Assign your business’s own code to appropriately describe union dues. The federal government does not give standardized codes for items in Box 14. Give your employees the full context of the codes so that you do not encounter misunderstandings.
