Deposited money into traditional IRA to repay 1/3 of my covid-19 distribution and TT is saying I owe a penalty for excess contributions.

Repaid 1/3 of my covid-19 distribution after Jan. 2023. When I put this under traditional IRA contribution and mark that it is a repayment, it is still saying I owe a penalty for excess contribution. I did mark the box that it is a repayment. Why is it saying this?

It is not a new contribution.  Don't enter it under Deductions & Credits.

So it is just entered as a rollover under wages and income and then under IRA, 401k, etc. withdrawals? In there it asked about the covid-19 repayment. When I made the payment to the IRA I had to classify it as a rollover. So that is the only place I need to put it?

Yes, you will enter the repayment of the 2020 Covid distribution in the retirement section only:

 

  1. Click "Federal Taxes" on the top and select "Wages & Income"
  2. Click "I'll choose what to work on"
  3. Scroll down and click "Start" next to "IRA, 401(k), Pension Plan (1099-R)
  4. Answer "No" to the question "Did You Have Any of These Types of Income?" if you didn't have a Form 1099-R for 2021  (If you have a Form 1099-R then enter all 1099-Rs and after entering your last 1099-R click "Continue" on the “Your 1099-R Entries​​​​​​​” screen)
  5. Answer "Yes" to the "Did you take a disaster distribution in prior years or repay…" screen
  6. Answer "Yes" on the "Did you take a 2020 Qualified Disaster Distribution" screen
  7.  Check the box next to "If this was a Coronavirus-related distribution reported in 2020 check here" and enter your information from your 2021 Form 9815-F, and then continue.
  8. Enter the repayment on the "Did you repay any 2020 Qualified Disaster Distribution in 2022?" screen
