Where do I enter my 1099-DIV in TurboTax Online?

SOLVEDby TurboTax4368Updated April 13, 2023

Form 1099-DIV reports dividend income you received from your investments. To enter this in TurboTax Online:

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account and open (continue) your return
  2. Select Federal from the left menu, then Wages & Income
  3. Locate the section titled Investments & Savings and select Show More, then select Start or Revisit next to Dividends on 1099-DIV
  4. Select Okay! On the screen Time to kick off your investments! OR Yes on the screen Did you receive any dividend income? then Continue
    • If you see the screen Your investments & savings or Here's your 1099-DIV info, select Add investments or Add another 1099-DIV, then Continue
  5. Choose how you'd like to enter your 1099-DIV:
    • If you want to import your form, select your bank or brokerage from the list, enter your sign-in info for your online account, and select Get my form 
    • If you'd rather manually enter your form, select Change how I enter my form, select 1099-DIV, then Type it in myself on the following screen
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to enter the info from your 1099-DIV
  7. When you reach the screen Here's your 1099-DIV info, the form you just entered should be listed
    • If you need to enter another 1099-DIV, select Add another 1099-DIV and follow Steps 4-6 above

Note: Don't combine the amounts from two or more 1099-DIV forms if they're from the same payer—enter each form separately.

You still need to report your dividend income, no matter the amount. However, your bank or stockbroker isn't required to send you a 1099-DIV, so you might not have one.

To report your dividend income without a 1099-DIV:

  1. Follow Steps 1-3 above
  2. On the screen Let's import your tax info, select Change how I enter my form, then Type it in myself
  3. On the next screen, enter the info for the Payer's information box and box 1a, Total Ordinary Dividends, then Continue
