Need to enter RMD payments but where how do I enter my RMD?

Just enter the 1099-R as written in the retirement section then complete the following screens in that section to indicate it was an RMD.  

 

 

Enter a 1099-R  here:

Federal Taxes,
Wages & Income
(I'll choose what I work on - if that screen comes up)
Retirement Plans & Social Security,
IRA, 401(k), Pension Plan Withdrawals (1099-R).

OR  Use the "Tools" menu  (if online version left side) and then "Search Topics" for "1099-R" which will take you to the same place.

Be sure to choose which spouse the 1099-R is for if this is a joint tax return.
Be sure to pick the correct 1099-R type:  Standard 1099-R, CSA-1099-R, CSF-1099-R, RRB-1099-R.

[NOTE:  When you get to the "Your 1099-R Entries" screen where you can add another 1099-R, use "continue" to keep going as there are additional interview questions after that screen in most cases.  You can always return as shown above.]

RMD's were waived for 2020.  But enter the 1099-R for any 2020 distribution you received here:

Federal > Wages and Income > Retirement.

 

(Please delete your contract # from your question, as this is a public forum.)

@SweetieJean Note that the poster said "annuity".   Not ALL RMD's were waived.  That may or may not require a 2020 RMD.    Ask the annuity custodian.

@macuser_22  Good point.  I had assumed that the Annuity was a qualified one.

This is what was waived - nothing else.

 

This is a quote from the CARES act.

  ``(I) Temporary waiver of minimum required 
                distribution.--
