I have two W-2's how do i file both of them?

One is for my pay for the year. The other one is because I am in the military and I moved across the country and was paid a substantial amount to do it. I was also taxed around 1500.00 USD though and I am wondering how do I get that money back? I know I am not supposed to file it as moving expenses though? IDK please help.

    1 1040 federal income tax return for both W-2 forms and any other worldwide income from any other sources would all be reported on the 1 1040 income tax return.

    You would combine the amounts on both W-2 forms Box 1 wages, etc Box 2 FIT amount and all of the other necessary information from the W-2 forms that will have to entered into the tax software program just as it is on the W-2 forms each one separately and the computer software will take care of the rest in order to get the correct number amounts on the correct lines of the 1040 income tax return in the software program that will be used for this purpose.

    You simply include all W-2s on your tax return. One return - all W-2s on it.
