1099-G (missing unemployment compensation options)

Hello, I'm trying to file my taxes and the questions for the form 1099-G I have to select the payment reported on 1099-G.

The only options are:

Taxable grants

Agricultural payment

Market Gain

Reemployment trade

Business or farm refund

There is no option for unemployment compensation.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Enter unemployment compensation in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to unemployment compensation


If you had taxes withheld from the unemployment compensation -

On the screen What's the total amount you received on your 1099-G? check the box Federal or state income tax was withheld on this payment.

I have the exact same issue as the OP.  When I follow your instructions and click "Go to unemployment compensation and PFL" from the search box it takes me to "Donations to Charity" page.  I've tried for 30 minutes and there is no way for me to enter 1099-G income without using one of the 5 choices the OP mentioned.  Please help!

 

Thanks

Looks like TurboTax changed the key word search.

 

To enter unemployment compensation

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Wages and Income (Personal Income using Home and Business)
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Under Unemployment
  • On Unemployment and Paid Family Leave, click the start or update button

Or enter unemployment in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to unemployment
