I have a 1098 with an amount in box 6, what do I do with it? When I try to enter it, it only askes for box 1. Does this amount not matter?

Retirement tax questions

If you took out the loan in 2016, you'll be able to enter the points reported on Form 1098 in Box 6 later in the tax interview. 

  • Enter the information on the Let's get the details from your 1098 now screen and click Continue.
  • TurboTax prompts Did you take out this loan in 2016? If you did, select Yes and click Continue
  • Next you'll be asked Did you pay points in 2016 when you took out the loan? Select the response that applies to your situation. If you select I paid points when I purchased or refinanced to improve my main home and click Continue, the next screen will have a place where you may enter the points reported in Box 6 of the 1098. (Click the screenshots below for reference.)
