how to enter unemployment

  • it isn't asking me to enter unemployment
  • same on my form -- to make it worse, each time you do it, you have to reenter all the information. I am extremely angry and frustrated at Turbo tax over this. If you tell TTax to go o the community to find answers, and tell it to do not make i.e. your default browser it sets up a loop that you cannot escape without shutting down everything having anything to do with t tax.
  • I also tried to pull up the actual form and enter the amount there, but that did not work either
  • When I try to enter my unemployment like any other W-@ (because I don't know how else to get it in the system) it keeps telling me that My employer took out too much in taxes and that I should request a refund and new W-2 and that it will wait to file my taxes until I have the new W-2. What?

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
