As directed, I prepared a paper copy of From 8606 for my deceased spouse.  Now how do I transfer the taxable amount (line 15c) to Turbo Tax?

Form 8606 for deceased spouse

More information needed.


As directed by who?    What exactally are you trying to do?  When did your spouse pass?  Whose name and SSN is on the 1099-R you are trying to report?  For what year?

Form 8606 for deceased spouse

All of that has been resolved with previous postings.  I am now filing my 2018 forms (after extension in April).  I'm told that Turbo Tax does not support form 8606 for a deceased spouse with "basis".  I was told to fill out a paper copy, out of Turbo Tax, of the 8606 for my spouse.  I was directed on how to then enter the "basis" into Turbo Tax, and get it combined with mine, which I have done.  The only remaining question is, how do I enter the taxable amount of RMD (line 15c) into Turbo Tax.  Otherwise I will have to pay tax on the total RMD.  Thanks for your help.
