How do we enter MA PFML from 1099-G and non-taxable portion from taxpayer contributions (MA electronic filing rejected negative for contribution)?

Level 1
Total amount reflected on 1099-G is not all taxable, as portion was contributed by the taxpayer.

Are you sure it's not taxable?

"Taxability of PFML Benefits

As of 2023, the IRS has not yet made a ruling on whether your PFML benefits are considered “taxable income.” Massachusetts tax treatment will follow the guidance provided by the IRS.

Employees have the option when applying to have state and federal taxes withheld from their weekly benefit. If an employee chooses this option, DFML will withhold 5% for state taxes and 10% for federal taxes. These are reductions DFML has set, not the IRS."

Have you seen a ruling letter?

"Level Up" is a gaming function, not a real life function.
