How to report "sale to cover taxes" RSUs in TurboTax Premier?

Do you report “sold to cover” as a regular stock sale in TurboTax? Seems like TurboTax is getting confused when I do that. I had 50 RSUs vested and 24 of them were sold to cover taxes. TurboTax asks the total number of RSUs for each sale. So if I report 2 sales: 

1. “sale to cover” 23 shares, and 

2. mine: 27 shares, 

TurboTax thinks that I’ve got 100 shares vested (while I had only 50), since each of the entry refers to 50 RSUs total. Basically it doesn't connect those two sales together. I obviously doing something wrong but cannot figure out what.

Can anyone help?

  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.
