Step by step confirms Box 5 of 1099-R is for health insurance premiums and enters on 1040 Line 16b properly (see attached) for PSO credit. No option for entering additional premiums deducted from pension such as long term care. Program indicates should not adjust Line 16b manually. Any guidance? Should TT not allow entry of these additional amounts up to $3000 in step by step?
After you enter the premiums as you show above, TT will make the adjustment on line 16 of form 1040. The amount from box 1 (or 2a), of the 1099-R, will show on line 16a of 1040 and $2046 less on line 16b, with the notation "PSO".
