Federal alimony income does not carry forward to WI Form 1A (software picked) and the step by step does not address the question. Forcing WI Form 1 the income appears.

You need to file the Wisconsin long form, Form 1, [not short form, Form 1A] because you reported alimony income on your federal  return.  Wisconsin tax forms have not yet been finalized in TurboTax.

To make sure Form 1 is used and that your alimony income is accounted for please follow these steps:

  1. Go back into your WI return.
  2. Go into Forms Mode by clicking on the Forms icon in the top right of the blue bar.  
  3. In the Forms in My Return list on the left, under Wisconsin Individual, click on the Info Worksheet  
  4. Make sure the box for Form 1 is marked. 
  5. To return to the interview, click on the Step-By-Step icon in the top right of the blue bar.
