<I sold stock last year that was obtained through an Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) but I'm having trouble getting Turbo Tax to allow me to enter the Qualifying Disposition.

Can anyone tell me where on the 1040 this income is supposed to reported so I can poke TTax into allowing me to enter this income? Alternatively, can someone tell me if TTax is even setup to handle this situation? >

I do not know what a Qualifying Disposition is (I assume it is a sale), but the capital gains are reported on Schedule D. From there it is transferred to line 13 of form 1040. I assume you enter your cost basis in column e of the form and the sale price in column d and follow the rest of the Schedule D instructions.

In TurboTax you get to this, if following their interview process, when they get to the item "Form 1099B - Capital Gains and Losses"
