Schedule D how to fill out

Many, but not all, Schedule D entries are reported from the information on IRS form 1099-B and the schedules that your broker enclose with the IRS form 1099-B.  They are all different and can be confusing.


Please follow these directions to enter a Federal form 1099-B.

  • Down the left side of the screen, click Federal.
  • Across the top of the screen, click Income & expenses.
  • Under Your income and expenses, scroll down to Investment income.
  • Click Show more to the right. 
  • Click Start/Revisit to the right of Stocks, mutual funds, bonds, other.
  • At the screen Here are all your investment sales, click Add more sales.
  • At the screen Did or will you receive a 1099-B form or brokerage statement for these sales?, click Yes.
  • At the screen Tell us more about this sale, enter the information requested.
  • At the screen Now we’ll walk you through entering your sale details, enter the information requested.
