Been on unemployment

You will have to enter a 1099G that is issued by your state.

 

Some states will mail out the 1099G.  Or you might need to go to your state’s unemployment website and use the password, etc. that you have been using to certify for weekly benefits to get your 1099G from the state’s site.

 

Enter your 1099G in Federal>Wages & Income>Unemployment

 

Go through the screens very carefully, making sure  to enter any federal/state tax you had withheld from the unemployment.

Were you on unemployment in 2020? If you are wondering about the $10,200 unemployment exclusion, you don't have to do anything special to get it. Just enter the amounts from your 1099-G. TurboTax will automatically calculate the exclusion if you are eligible for it.
