Last year (2018) was the first year my husband put into a retirement plan. On his W-2, the retirement plan is marked. He did not take anything out of it, just put in to it. In addition to the regular 1040EZ form with our W-2s, are there any other forms we need to fill out?
The Retirement Plan box checked on the W-2 is just an indicator that the employee was an eligible participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan. It does not necessitate any additional form filing.
