"When entering an IRA distribution into H&R block, the last screen asks for taxable amount. Reduce the taxable amount by the amount of the QCD."

I did....but there is supposed to be a box there to check QCD distribution..... and there isn't. When you enter the 1099-R asks for withdrawal - next line is taxable amount. Enter zero.... but that is supposed to trigger something that allows you to indicate QCD.

In this case, 100% of the IRA withdrawal went QCD.....1300 bucks - and there was no RMD last year in 2020. I took no other funds.

Otherwise, if only part of your IRA withdrawal is QCD, I think you have to fill out form 8606, but the H&R block program won't let me fill out that form.
