Turbo Tax question: repeating imports for different incomes?

So, be gentle - first time Turbo Tax user question....

I'm stepping thru the different income types for things like 1099-INT and -DIV.

Do I need to keep importing the same consolidated statement from Fidelity for each of these income types?

I would think that TT would be 'smart' enough to know about the first import.

Just going from memory, when I downloaded mine from Vanguard it showed the various tax documents available for each log in and I did them all at once (one download for my and our joint account documents) and another download for DW's accounts. So I checked 1099-R, 1099-DIV and 1099-B, as applicable for each account and they all come in at once. Easy peasy.

I'm not sure if it's the same for Fidelity, but at Vanguard, tax forms for brokerage accounts won't be available until mid-Feb, although the tax forms for mutual fund accts are available now.

So if you have mutual fund & brokerage accts, you may want to hold off until you know all the forms are available & then download them all in one fell swoop.

Exactly.

Fidelity has posted what is called their Consolidated 1099 Form with all the appropriated income types specified.


So....was expecting Turbo Tax to know how to deal with that by parsing thru the data....guess not as I ended up importing the same document more than once.

I've never had to download one tax form multiple times.

I do not remember checking off the various tax forms as someone mentioned (does not mean I did not do it... just cannot remember).... but TT downloaded all the tax info from Vanguard at one time.... all dividends and sale of shares...

That is my recollection of events as well. I just looked at my account and it has all the forms ready for the IRA account and mutual funds but not for the ETF's. I'll wait until all forms are ready in case I don't get the option to pick and choose which forms to update.

So if you have mutual fund & brokerage accts, you may want to hold off until you know all the forms are available & then download them all in one fell swoop.

I imported all my Vanguard account info earlier this week.
