The IRS does form matching on all W-2's. So, if the amount on your tax return does not agree to the W-2 you will get a letter from the IRS "correcting" your return amounts reported.Your best bet would be to report the correct amount on the tax return and attach a schedule showing the amounts reported on the W-2 and how those amounts should be adjusted to the actual totals. A note on this schedule describing the situation would help too. Just write in "See Attached Schedule" on line 7 of the 1040. Another option would be to give the IRS a call and describe the situation to them and get their advice. However, it will take hours on hold to get to talk to an IRS Representative this time of year.Good Luck!
