I am green card holder receiving a mthly pension from a former Canadian employer. I never made contributions so 1099R doesn't work. Do I enter as Other Income or 1099R?

A 1099R asks questions that do not apply whatsoever.

You will enter your foreign pension as "Other Income."  To enter it on your return, follow the instructions below:

  • Choose the Federal return and the Wages & Income tab.
  • Scroll down to Less Common Income and Show more.
  • Choose Miscellaneous Income, 1099-A, 1099-C.
  • Choose Other Reportable Income and say Yes.
  • The screen says "Do not enter income reported on Form 1099-MISC".  This is where you will enter the description "Foreign Pension" and the amount you received.
