Do I file the $1,200 stimulus I received on my taxes

Yes. Those entries will be made in the "Federal Review" tab.  Once you have entered all the information for the federal return, you will arrive at the "Federal Review" topic.  There you will be asked to enter any amounts you received for stimulus rounds one and/or two. 


You can also go to the questions directly by clicking the "Federal Review" tab found at the top right of your TurboTax page.  


You do not enter the stimulus payments anywhere else on your return; they are not taxable income. 


Here is a link with more information on the Recovery Rebate Credit.
