1099r box 9a

My sister and I inherited an IRA from my mother.  We took the total contribution, so we have to pay taxes on it.  We both received a 1099R which said 50% in Box 9a, "Your percentage of the total distribution".

 

I was surprised to see the full amount on line 4a of Form 1040.  My assumption is I need to pay taxes on 1/2 of the distribution, as does my sister.  It makes no sense to me that we should both pay taxes on the full amount.

 

This seems like a bug in Turbo Tax.  My inclination is to do the 50% percentage myself, on line 4a.

 

Wouldn't that be correct??

Line 4a is not the taxable amount. That would be Line 4b.
This is a bug in Turbotax.

The total distribution is entered on Form 1040 Line 4a.  The taxable amount of the distribution is entered on Form 1040 Line 4b

Add lines 1, 2b, 3b, 4b, 4d, 5b, 6, and 7a. This is your total income

When entering the 1099-R, use ( amount / 2 ) in box 2a and make sure 2b is not checked.
