Generally, you would only enter withholdings in the Other Withholdings section of your account if you had withholdings on a form that you were not able to enter elsewhere in the program. This applies to Form 1099-B with taxes withheld in Box 4.
To report these other withholdings, please log into your account and go to:
- Federal Section
- Payments & Estimates
- Other Federal Withholdings (or Other State Withholdings)
Though there are exceptions and a few other circumstances when you would do this, most taxpayers will not need to enter an amount for Other Withholdings. We recommend you review the 1040 Instructions before placing any other amounts in this field.
