Interest from Personal Line of Credit

What section is the interest from a personal line of credit entered? It seems as if Turbo tax wants me to upgrade to Premium to enter this amount.

Interest from Personal Line of Credit

No, interest expenses from a personal loan or line of credit are not directly deductable in your tax file. 

However, you can reduce the amount of interest you pay on personal credit cards and loans and replace it with the interest you pay on investment loans. You can then deduct the interest on the money borrowed for your investments and reduce your overall taxes.
