This income is considered an inherited investment, the income from it is taxable to you. 

 

To enter the Income:

  • Log in to your return.
  • Click on Federal Taxes.
  • Click on Income & Expenses.
  • Scroll to Other Common Income.
  • Click the Start button beside Form 1099-MISC.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions.
