SSA-1099 count as a W2

No, the SSA-1099 is not the same as a W-2 and they are entered in different places in TurboTax.

To enter your SSA-1099:

  • Click My Account (Top right of your screen). 
  • Select Tools.
  • In the pop up window, select Topic Search.
  • Select Yes, let's work on Social Security benefits and click Continue.
  • Check the first box, Form SSA-1099.
  • Enter the amounts for yourself and your jointly-filing spouse, if they received an SSA-1099 also.
    • SSA-1099s for children and other dependents are not reported on your return. They should report it on their own return, but only if they're required to file a return for some other reason (this is uncommon).
  • Click Continue

TurboTax will automatically calculate what portion, if any, of your Social Security benefits are taxable.

To enter your w-2:

  • Click Federal Taxes
  • Then click Wages & Income
  • Select "I'll choose what I work on"
  • Scroll down to Wages & Salaries section and click Start.
  • Continue through the interview to enter your W-2 information.
