How to report on form 8949?

TurboTax will automatically generate Form 8949 when you report the sale or disposition of capital assets. For example, when you enter stock sales reported on Form 1099-B, TurboTax will generate the 8949. 

For more information, including how to determine the cost basis of a stock, please see the FAQs below.


To enter Form 1099-B in TurboTax Online:

  • Open (continue) your return in TurboTax Online. (If your return isn't open, you'll need to sign in and click Take me to my return.)
  • Click the drop-down arrow next to Tax Tools (lower left of your screen).
  • Select Tools.
  • In the pop-up window, select Topic Search.
  • In the I'm looking for: box, type 1099-b.
  • In the results box, highlight 1099-b, then click GO.
  • You'll land on Did you sell any investments in 2016? Click Yes.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions. You'll be able to enter the 1099-B info yourself or import it if your brokerage participates in the TurboTax Partner program.

On the CD version, how do I trigger Form 8949 adjustments for wash sales? I want to recognize them for “Trader Tax Status”

The program generates forms as you hit the key items.

 

When you are adding the sale of the stock, there is a box that says I need to enter amounts from box 1f, box 1g, or other adjustments. Check that box. You can then list codes and make adjustments for your wash sales. The 8949 will be generated.

Can I use form 8949 to report an uncollectable loan? If not, where can I write it off?

Can you please clarify what kind of loan?

There are two kinds of bad debts – business and nonbusiness.

Please check the IRS link below for information on how to deduct bad debt.

I need to add an entry to 8949 for an Opportunity Zone investment, with a "Z" in column (g), per IRS directions.  I understand that TurboTax doesn't support form 8997 to keep track of the OZ investment over the 10 years, but at least need TurboTax to allow me to enter the IRS-required code.

The QOZ is not supported by the TT program since most taxpayers who use that option do not file their own returns so there is not enough call for that form to make it economically viable.   If you used the downloaded version of the program you can make an override in the FORMS mode to include that on the 8949  but you will have to fill in the 8997 manually and include it in the mailed in return since efiling will not be allowed.
