Reporting CERB on Form 1040? Form? Line?

Post by Danielle105 »

I am a Canadian senior, USA permanent resident. I received the senior one time CERB payment ($300 Canadian) in 2020. (I add CPP and OAS to my social security retirement income). Can anyone tell me what 1040-SR related forms, line number, should be used to report the CERB payment?

I am thinking "Schedule 1, line 8, Other Income." makes sense for the CERB entry, but I am not absolutely sure. Turbo tax gives me enough space to enter a full description. e.g. "Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)"
