T5008 RL-18 where does this go

Went through a bunch of this question being asked, did not find my answer, where does this go?

I have a T5008 RL-18 from a brokerage company. It is a summary of my stock trades. Unlike a standard T5008, which is a simple slip that you enter into TurboTax, you will need to enter each stock sale/disposition individually, which will typically include the name of the stock, purchase date, sale date, number of shares, cost basis (price paid) and proceeds (price sold). For the stocks that you haven't sold yet (i.e. don't have a sale/disposition), you will need to keep track of them when you sell the stocks in future years because you will need to enter the purchase date and cost basis for the next T5008 RL-18 forms you receive.

To get to the screen to enter your sales/dispositions, you need to make sure you have checked "Did you sell stock, bonds, mutual funds, real estate or other property?" in the Profile questionnaire at the beginning of TurboTax. You'll be able to enter the information shortly after you finish entering all your T-slips.

Hope this helps and correct me if I'm wrong.

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.
