10463: 2106 - Data from 8829


1040 Individual Data Entry

I can't get data from entries on the 8829 to carry to Form 2106.

 

Go to the 2106 screen in data entry. Make sure it has either a T or S code entered. Beginning in 2018, you will also need to indicate one of the following, if applicable:

  • Qualified performing artist
  • Fee-based state or local government official
  • Impairment related work expenses
  • Armed forces reservist

     See Related Links below for details on changes to Form 2106.  

Next, go to the 8829 screen in data entry. Enter 2106 in the FOR field and enter the appropriate code in the multi-form code field. Screen Help (accessed by right clicking on the screen and choosing Screen Help) explains:

8829 Multi-form Code for Form 2106:

If the 8829 is for a taxpayer's 2106, enter "1" in the MULTI-FORM CODE field.  If the 8829 is for a spouse's 2106 and the taxpayer does not have a 2106, enter "1" in the MULTI-FORM CODE field. If the 8829 is for a spouse's 2106 and the taxpayer has a 2106, enter "2" in the MULTI-FORM CODE field.  If the 8829 is for a spouse's 2106 and the taxpayer has two 2106s, enter "3" in the MULTI-FORM CODE field.
