Below are the steps to enter the Regulated Futures Contracts and Options 1099-B information in TurboTax:

  • Click on the Federal Taxes tab
  • Select the Wages and Income tab
  • Select  the EXPLORE ON MY OWN option (this may require you to click through one or two other screens beforehand)
  • Scroll down to the  Investment Income subgroup
  • Next the Contracts and Straddles line, and click the start button
  • Answer YES that you had Sec. 1256 contracts
  • Don't make any special elections selections unless they apply to you
  • On the Contracts and Straddles page, choose the box next to the Sec. 1256 Contracts marked-to-market
  • Click continue, and from there TurboTax will take you through the necessary questions and answers tree.
