There is no code for a 1099-R that indicates that a distribution was a non-taxable qualified charitable distribution.  In the series of questions after you enter your 1099-R TurboTax will ask if any of the distribution was transferred to charity.  Indicate Yes and enter the amount transferred.  TurboTax will exclude this amount from Form 1040 line 15b or Form 1040A line 11b and will place the letters "QCD" on the line.

You must also file Form 8606, Nondeductible IRAs, if:

  • you made the qualified charitable distribution from a traditional IRA in which you had basis and received a distribution from the IRA during the same year, other than the qualified charitable distribution; or
  • the qualified charitable distribution was made from a Roth IRA.

Note that a QCD cannot be made from basis in nondeductible contributions, so it will not appear on Form 8606.  The QCD comes entirely from the pre-tax money in the individual's traditional IRAs.
