Box 14 is just informational. Unless the information has a direct impact on the return that has not already been reflected on the W-2, there is no need to have a separate item for it. "Other" is fine.
So assuming all of the other boxes on the W-2 have the proper numbers, there is no need to even enter Box 14 if it doesn't require an additional entry elsewhere on the tax return.
I can't find a definitve answer, but this seems to be a deductible tax on the federal Schedule A, similar to Califorinia's CASDI. Like the California tax, the program should add it to Schedule A taxes. Not that anyone in New York needs it, since they're all over the $10,000 SALT limit anyway.
