HelloNo, only your taxable amount is entered on line 20b. The taxable amount, if any, depends upon:• Filing status and other reportable income• Whether the benefits were the taxpayer’s only source of income• If the benefits were the only source of income, the benefits are generally not taxable, and the taxpayer need not file a federal income tax return.• If the taxpayer received other incomeThere is a worksheet to determine if any is taxable and reported on 20b.
