Tax Schedule report missing Salary and Social Security

Any idea why the default subject report (includes all categories) fails to display the Salary and Social Security content? The other income is displayed but not those items categorized as Salary or Social Security.

The default Banking Summary report displays all the income categories and the default Tax Summary report displays the Salary but not the Social Security items.

Seems inconsistent when it comes to the Tax reports?

    Both mine and my spouse's SS income shows up in both the Tax Schedule and the Tax Summary Reports.

    What tax line do you have associated with the category you are using for SS income?  Appears it should be "Form 1040:Social Security Income; Self" (or Spouse)

    Social Security is not a built-in category. Each user must create the appropriate category or categories, and link them to the correct tax line items. Until you do that, SS won't show on tax reports. See @q_lurker's response above.

    Likewise, if your Salary category is missing from tax reports, look it up in Tools > Category list and make sure it has the correct Tax line item, which is W2:Salary or wages, self or ... spouse.

    Extending the remarks from 3 SuperUsers, above.
    NOTHING is included on the Tax reports unless that category (or account) has a tax line associated with it.
    Q has no way of knowing that "Joe Blow's Paycheck" should be associated with the W2:Salary tax line.
    Same for "Janie Somebody's SS check".  It has to have a tax line associated in order to show up in the Tax reports.
    Do TOOLS, Category List and see if the categories that you're using have appropriate tax lines.  Edit the categories, as needed, to correct.
