Adjusting cost basis for return of capital not on a K1

I have a 1099-DIV where I believe the distribution that is a return of capital gets put in box 2d3 non dividend distributions. When I sell the stock, this reduces my basis, and there is no way my broker will connect this on the statement of capital gains and reduce the cost basis beyond what I paid for it. Where do I enter this in turbo-tax ?

Is it entered manually under corrected cost basis , when you click thru it makes no mention of this in the step by step help ???

Your non-dividend distribution shows up in box 3 of your 1099-DIV.  Although you are entering the information from your 1099-DIV into TurboTax, it will not show up on your tax return. 

 

A non-dividend distribution is a "return of capital", or you are getting some of your original investment back.

On a partnership return do i have to adjust my annual capital accounts basis for a non dividend distribution

Yes, any distribution to the partner  reduces the partner's basis in the partnership, and will need to be accounted for in Schedule M-2 on Form 1065 and item L of the partner's  Schedule K-1.
