If I enter it in the first box, that is where it gives me the extra refund. If I enter it in the second box, then the $600 goes away.
You will have to enter your 1099-R exactly as it is shown on the form. For example if it shows an amount in box 1 then you enter it in box 1 in TurboTax.
- Login to your TurboTax Account
- Click on the Search box on the top and type “1099-R”
- Click on “Jump to 1099-R” and enter your 1099-R

Your DFAS should show the same amount in box 2a as is in box 1. Neither box in 2b should be marked.
The amount of Military retirement from DFAS reported on Form 1099-R is fully taxable.
You will need to review the input to be sure everything was input correctly to determine why it is doubling your amount.
