Do you input Dividend Income twice in doing estimated taxes?

In doing estimated taxes, Turbo Tax asks for qualified dividend income in the investment gains and losses question.  Then on the next question dealing with other income and losses, Turbo Tax asks for dividend income again.  Do you put the amount in twice?

Do you input Dividend Income twice in doing estimated taxes?

You would not put the same amount twice.  The first question refers to the dividends you receive directly (either from the company or through your broker).  The second time refers to dividends you "received" indirectly as an investor in a partnership, inheritance, something like that.  The partnership/whatever actually got the money.  But tax and regular accounting requires that amount to be "passed through" to investors described as a dividend.
