TurboTax Updates on Unemployment Tax Relief

@andytnguyensbcglobalnetIt is updated. Make sure the software is closed and then open it. Accept updates to the software. The $10200 (or Less) exclusion should be there if you had $10200 available to be excluded or any unemployment amount below that. Check your Forms Schedule 1 Line 8 to see if it shows the exclusion.

Why would mine not be updated then? I even deleted my 1099G and re-entered it...nothing changed. It's still showing my full amount of unemployment benefits.

TurboTax Updates on Unemployment Tax Relief

I have Turbo Tax Deluxe.  It does not take into account the recent $10,200 exclusion of unemployment compensation for 2020.  It also does not provide the subtraction for unemployment compensation for 2020 that the State of Maryland recently enacted.

 

When will these updates be available?

TurboTax Updates on Unemployment Tax Relief

Re: the social security benefits worksheet, line 3 of this worksheet in the 1040 instructions book says to add Form 1040 line 8, which is from Schedule 1 line 9.  That includes the $10,200 unemployment tax relief (exclusion), which needs to be added back on line 3 of the worksheet to calculate the taxable social security.  So the amount on line 3 would be $10,200 higher.  The TurboTax program actually added the $10,200 back on the worksheet, so the amount shown on line 3 is proper.  it is just the line item label was not changed.  I was hoping the taxable SS would be lowered by the tax relief.  Oh well.

Is your 2020 Adjusted Gross Income $150,000 or more?  Have you entered any unemployment compensation on your tax return?  It would show on Schedule 1 Line 7.

If your software has been updated and is at version 020.000.1688 and you have unemployment compensation entered and your AGI is less than $150,000, then there is no reason for not having that UC being excluded.

 

The only thing I can recommend is for you to close the program.  Re-boot your computer and then access the program again to see if the update took hold.

If not, contact TurboTax support for assistance
