Import to Turbo Tax and Other Tax Preparation Software

With Online Access, you can import information from certain Edward Jones tax forms into TurboTax® and other tax preparation software programs. TurboTax is a registered trademark of Intuit Inc.

  • Use your Online Access login information to import information from your Form 1099-R and Consolidated 1099 Tax Statement (Forms 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC and 1099-OID).

Manually entering additional information into Turbo Tax®

Once you have imported your 1099 information, Turbo Tax® may ask for additional information Edward Jones provides in certain supplemental sections of your Consolidated 1099 Tax Statement.

The Additional Tax Information(ATI) section provides:

  • Foreign Dividends Received: If foreign tax was withheld from dividends you received, Turbo Tax® may ask for the amount of Foreign Dividends Received. This information is listed as Foreign Dividends Received/Foreign Source Income in the ATI section.
  • Potential State Tax Exclusions:
    • Interest on Federal Obligations: If you received interest income from certain federal obligations you held, or from a mutual fund that held federal obligations within its portfolio, this amount is listed in the ATI section and may be excludable from state taxable income, depending on your state’s law.
    • Interest on Municipal and U.S. Territory Obligations: The ATI section lists the amount of federally tax-exempt interest from obligations you held (owned "directly") or exempt-interest dividends paid by one your mutual funds that held the obligations (owned "indirectly"). Turbo Tax® may ask you to input the state where the obligations originated. For this purpose, enter the two-letter abbreviation for the state, e.g. "CA" for California.

The Summary of Investment Income (SII) section provides:

  • Accrued Interest Paid to Purchase a Bond: Accrued interest you paid at the time of purchase may reduce the interest income you received from the bond.
    Note: Accrued interest is included for the year the bond first paid interest to you. If you paid accrued interest to purchase a bond that did not pay interest to you in the same tax year, the accrued interest will not be included in the SII section until the bond pays you interest the following year.
