Entry from a 1099-B, to be reported on form 8949, Part II, with Box D checked is currently not possible, only boxes A-C. When will Turbotax allow entries to boxes D-F?



I am having the opposite problem.  My 1099 says to report my L-T Capital Gains on Part II, Box A.  My problem is that there is no Box A on my Form 8949, Part II -- it only has Box D,E,F.  So it appears to me that somebody/something is wrong here -- either my 1099 or TurboTax.

Whoops, just checked again.  The Schwab 1099 says Part II, Box A, but a M-L Edge 1099 says Part II, Box D.  So it looks like a call to Schwab tomorrow to see what is going on.

One last comment - are you on TT 2013.  Last year, TT just had Box A,B.C on Part II, but my TT 2013 does have D,E,F on Part II.  Just a thought -- or maybe as someone suggested, you need the updates.  Don't know when TT made the changes.  And for others that have Schwab 1099s, beware that the language there may be wrong, although the wording of the three options each of the 8949 (Part I and Part II) seems to be correct.  ron in round rock

P.S.  Not an answer - can't tell how to make a comment.

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.
