Question

My company withheld city taxes from my paycheck. However, I noticed city tax missing on W2. How can I report my city taxes when filing my return?

Answer

If your withheld taxes from the city are not on your W2, Box 19, contact your employer and request a corrected W2 so you can file taxes accurately.

When filing taxes, you report state and local income taxes as an itemized deduction on Schedule A.
