When you start the Form 1099-R section there is a screen which asks, by Name, who the form belongs to.

 

To enter, edit or delete a form 1099-R -

Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
Click on Wages and Income (Personal Income using Home and Business)
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

 

Or enter 1099-r in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to 1099-R

 

On the screen Let's import your tax info Click on Change how I enter my form

On the screen How do you want to add your 1099‑R? Click on Type it in myself

On the screen Who gave you a 1099-R? select the type of 1099-R you received and Continue

The same way you entered your 1099R.  The easiest way to get to the 1099-R entry screen is to simply search for 1099-R (upper- or lower-case, with or without the dash) in your TurboTax program and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.

 

Enter a 1099R under

Federal Taxes Tab or Personal (Home & Business)

Wages & Income at the top

 

Then scroll way down to Retirement Plans and Social Security,

Then IRA, 401(k), Pension Plans (1099R) - click Start or Revisit

 

There are 4 boxes.  Be sure to pick the right box for the kind of 1099R you got.

 

If you are filing a Joint return be sure to pick which person it is for.

 

Don't enter the bank or broker name and don't try to import it.  It is just as fast and easy to manually enter it.  At the bottom pick -  Change How I enter my Form

Then on the next screen pick I'll Type it in Myself
