The only defined benefit plan entry I see is "Defined Benefit Keogh" I don't think my defined benefit plan is a Keogh. Does it matter? Is it correct to enter it here?

This is not helpful. Defined benefit plans are not listed. The only ones listed are:Keogh,SEP, SIMPLE, and 401(k)s. None of these options is correct.

I am having the same problem. When the software asks for the Box 14 Code R detail on the K-1, there is no option for a defined benefit plan that is not a Keogh.

Has anyone else figured out where to put defined benefit contributions into the software. I have called intuit, talked to a customer service rep, as well as one of their CPA's and they were not able to give me an answer

Ok ... as asked of all the other posters ....  are you an employee or self employed ?   Do you have a partnership or corporation ?   Are you completing a personal return ?

For everyone above who didn't get an answer above, I believe that the defined benefit contribution goes under "Keogh Defined Benefit" under the self employed 401k section in turbotax as this populates on to Form 1040 Line 28 which per IRS notification this is the correct place to input this number.
