<< I had a flood in my house that resulted in about 12K damage. I used the money to improve the house with new paint and flooring. How do I claim the income. Does anybody know if TurboTax can handle this question and report it properly? >>

TT can handle reporting it if you tell it what to report. Insurance reimbursements in excess of your loss are miscellaneous income on line 21 of the 1040. Why do you think you have reportable income?
