Why does the turbo tax program not add the amount to income that I entered from the form SSA-1099 social security benefit statement?

Maybe it's not taxable?

 

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

 

To see the Social Security Benefits Calculation Worksheet  in Turbo Tax Online version you would have to save your return with all the worksheets to your computer.   Or if you are using the Desktop CD/Download Software you can switch to Forms Mode (click Forms in the upper right) and click on SS in the list on the left side.

Look at your Form 1040 on lines 6a and 6b----that is where it shows your Social Security income and how much of it was taxable.
