Retirement tax questions

You will enter each 1099R.  The TSP (or Thrift Saving Plan) you had a loan and did not pay it back, so when it was determined it was not going to be paid back, it is income to you (as it no longer has to be repaid).

The 2nd 1099R is the regular retirement now from the Postal service and you get monthly payments. 

When you enter each of these in TurboTax remember which one it is and answer the questions correctly that follow the 1099R, entry.  

 To enter pension and annuity Payments (1099-R)

  • Click on Federal Taxes
  • Click on Wages and Income
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security
  • On IRA, 401(k), Pension Plan Withdrawals (1099-R), click the start or update button

Congratulations on the retirement.
