Where do I enter the information from 1099-DIV for US mutual funds? (dividends and capital gains)

I received a 1099-DIV for US mutual funds. It has three fields filled: "1a Total Ordinary Dividends", "1b Qualified Dividends" (which is the same value as 1a), and "2a Total Capital Gain Distributions". Under Income>T-slips>Foreign Slips, Turbotax has a field labelled "Foreign capital gains or losses", which I assume is where I put the capital gain distributions from field 2a. Where do I put my foreign dividends?

Answer

You are correctly reporting your foreign capital gains/losses.

"Where do I put my foreign dividends?"  This is reported on line 121 of your tax return.

Line 121- CRA interest amounts, and some foreign interest income.

To review and confirm the source amounts for interest and other investment income not on a T-slip: 

  • In the upper-right corner of your screen, select Find.
  • In the Find window, type Interest on Bank Accounts.
  • Select Interest on Bank Accounts from the list, and select Go.

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.
