1042-S forms with code 01 and code 06. How to enter in Turbotax. Do I need to file by mail or can I still e-file?

I'm filing as resident and Scottrade sent me two 1042-S forms. The total amounts are under $100.

In box 1, one form has code 01 and the other has code 06.

Since I'm filing as resident, I want to see if I can enter these manually on Turbo Tax (I know that it doesn't support these forms).

Could someone point me to the correct way to input the income for both of these codes in Turbotax?

  4. Scroll down the screen until to come to the section “Interest and Dividends
  5. Choose “ Interest on 1099-INT” and select “start’
