How do I split capital gains between spousal returns?

TurboTax does not automatically split capital gains between spousal returns. Each spouse must separately report the appropriate percentage on their own return.

For example, if you and your spouse purchased (and sold) 100 shares of stock and you paid 1/4 of the total purchase amount, you would enter information for 25 of the shares and 25% of the expenses on your return. Your spouse would then enter the rest on his or her own return.
