Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I have more than one occupation (2). They occur separately (in blocks) but I spend about the same amount of time in each. Do I write both? Should I choose? How?

Just choose one of the occupations.  This is only used for statistical purposes and has no effect on your tax return.

The IRS only uses "occupation" for statistical purposes.  Occupation has no effect on your tax due or refund.  Use the one you want or put both---like carpenter/plumber.
