What value do I use on an import file to check a box on the form?

Accepted values

If a field on an imported form is a checkbox, the value on the import file will need to have one of the following values entered:

  • TRUE: box is checked 
  • 1: box is checked
  • X: box is checked (only applies to Yearli 2016 or newer)
  • FALSE: box is unchecked
  • 0: box is unchecked
  • Blank: box is unchecked

For example, if importing a W-2 form and the Statutory Employee checkbox and Retirement Plan checkbox in Box 13 need to be checked for John Doe, the import file may look something like this:

Employee Social Security Number
Employee First Name
Employee Last Name
Gross Wages
Statutory Employee
Retirement Plan
 123-45-6789 John Doe 30000 TRUE 1

If the John Doe was not a Statutory Employee and did not have a Retirement Plan, the import file could look like this:

Employee Social Security Number
Employee First Name
Employee Last Name
Gross Wages
Statutory Employee
Retirement Plan
 123-45-6789 John Doe 30000 FALSE 0
