How do I enter the foreign tax credit?

this doesn't help me enough. where to I actually input how much $$$ I have been taxed by Canada. See when I report my foreign income my US refund drops to zilch. I know how to do a foreign tax credit, but its not clear where I input that number and its not being reflected by my est. tax refund returning to its normal number.

I'm having the same problem. The Foreign Tax Credit Computation Worksheet is not calculating correctly.

How do I enter the foreign tax credit?

Same problem. I already enter my Foreign wage but the Foreign Taxes section keeps saying that it didn't find my foreign income Tax payment. I thought this is the place for me to enter it...

How do I enter the foreign tax credit?

This "recommended answer" is not helpful in the least.  I'm using the desktop version of "Home and Business" and there is no tab labeled "Federal Taxes"  There is a section of PERSONAL called "Deductions and Credits" where we find a "Foreign Taxes" section which does not clearly provide a place to specify how much foreign tax was paid.   Additionally, I've got a large carryover (as one does as a dual US/Canadian citizen) and when I come out the other side of this step-by-step, the value for Foreign taxes paid remains as $0.

That answer is from 2 years ago, and was correct at the time. The program labels have changed since then. There is currently an issue with Foreign taxes. TT is working on it.

How do I enter the foreign tax credit?

Has this been fixed?  I also am unable to enter an amount of Foreign Taxes paid - I can only view a calculated foreign tax credit (which is less than what I paid).  This is extremely confusing when all I want to do is enter the dollar amount of foreign taxes paid.
