THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR I RECIEVED A FORM SSA 1099 ,,,WHERE DO I ENTER THIS ON MY TURBO TAX?

Enter Form 1099 SSA in the Social Security interview found under Federal Tax > Wages and Income > Retirement Plans and Social Security (or enter "social security income" in the Search Box of TurboTax online and select "Jump to social security income").

 

 

Form 1099 SSA is the tax form sent to people who receive Social Security benefits. It shows the total amount of benefits you received from Social Security in the previous year so you know how much Social Security income to report to IRS on your tax return.

Try going to the search box and type in SSA-1099 or Social Security Benefits.  That will give you a Jump To link to take you directly to it.

 

OR

Enter a SSA-1099, SSA-1099-SM or RRB-1099  under

Federal Taxes on the left side or top

Wages and Income

Then scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security

Then the second line - Social Security (SSA-1099. RRB-1099) - click the Start or Revisit  button

 

2020 1040 line 6a is the gross Social Security amount and 6b is the taxable part of Social Security.

 

Up to 85% of Social Security becomes taxable when all your other income plus 1/2 your social security, reaches:

Married Filing Jointly: $32,000

Single or head of household: $25,000

Married Filing Separately: 0
