It goes on the line for additional income, income for which you don't have a W2 or 1099.

Thanks Ray and Paddington That's where I ended up putting it- in miscellaneous income. I remember reading something on here about it making a difference where you report your pension on the tax return - as to it being taxed as earned income or pension - but that was a long time ago, and the search engine hasn't found anything. Thanks for your help

We filed taxes today and i asked about that for my Mum.The tax guy said no need to file.
She would only do taxes if she had interest in a bank account over $10,000 a year.

Interesting comment on the Turbo tax forum ..


"To try and resolve this I had a protracted e-mail correspondence with Turbotax followed by a lengthy phone call. The outcome is that Turbotax does not handle foreign pensions and I was advised to seek professional help! Apparently my problem was exacerbated by my being a foreign resident and thus had paid foreign taxes on my pension. Turbotax were not able to process the pension income or help at all.
There are hundreds of thousands of US expatriots around the world and it is clear from Blogs etc. that I am not alone with this problem. Turbotax are cutting themselves off from a huge customer base by not including software to handle foreign pensions and taxes within its software - it can't be that complex."
