I am 66 years old. I converted $40,000 from a traditional IRA to a Roth. Turbo tax is saying that I must pay a 6% penalty. Is that correct?

Enter the 1099-R in Federal > Wages and Income > Retirement.  One of the follow up questions asks about Roth conversions.

Do not enter anything as a Roth contribution.   If you did so, delete it.
