How do I post information on cost basis

I have the tax form from Fidelity and it needs a cost basis for the sale of a stock. I have the cost basis, how do I include that on Turbo Tax

How do I post information on cost basis

You would enter your cost as if it was on the Fidelity print out. 

  1. As you are entering the stock, on the Tell Us about your Fidelity 1099-B screen, 
  2. Enter the Box 1e Cost or other basis that you have.

See the screenshot below.
