I'm trying to add my 1099-g into my return, but it is not any of the listed options of the type of government payment.

 

The most common use of the 1099-G is to report unemployment compensation as well as any state or local income tax refunds you received that year. Let me know if it is not one of those types.

How to enter Unemployment 1099-G:

  1. Click the Federal Taxes Tab( Personal Tab in Home & Business)
  2. Choose Wages & Income
  3. Choose Explore on my own or I'll choose what to work on 
  4. Locate the Unemployment area - Click the Start or Update Button

Here is how to enter your State/Local 1099-G:

  1. Click the Federal Taxes Tab( Personal Tab in Home & Business)
  2. Choose Wages & Income
  3. Choose Explore on my own or I'll choose what to work on 
  4. Scroll down to Other common Income
  5. Click Start/Update next to State and Local Refunds ( 1099-G)
