Hello @8276! Yes, it'll be shown on Schedule 1, Additional Income Section. Here is a good link for more information on the topic: https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tips/unemployment/guide-to-unemployment-and-taxes/L1uajNdHD

What did you do?   If you entered your 1099G for unemployment correctly it goes on the Schedule 1 that is part of your Form 1040---it will be on lines 7 and 8.  Where did you enter it?

Yes, unemployment is reported on line 7 of Schedule 1, from there it carries to line 8 of form 1040.  If you received unemployment income, and did not report it, you should amend your tax return to include the unemployment income and any tax withheld.

 

Here are a couple of links to help you get started amending your return using TurboTax.
