How do I report United Nations income on Turbotax? Where do I find line 256 or the form that contains it?

I am trying to file my taxes for the first time. I am employed by the United Nations and from this forum and speaking to agents, I know that I need to put my UN Income under line 256 as it is tax exempt - the question is, how do I do this on Turbotax? I don't see the Income Tax and Benefit Return form anywhere nor am I able to find line 256 under 'Foreign Income'. Thanks to everyone in advance.

Line 256 - Additional deductions

Line 256 information can come from a few different spots on your return. 

Other exempt income including employment with a prescribed international organization (such as the United Nations).

To enter in and confirm the source amounts of your other exempt foreign income:

  1. In the upper-right corner of your screen, select Find.
  2. In the Find window, type Other.
  3. Select Other Deductions from the list, and select Go.

To enter an amount in line 25600 on your T1 in TurboTax Online, click “Find” (magnifying glass) in the top right and search for “other”. Select “Other Deductions” from the list and click on the “Go” button. Click the “Continue” button, until you get to the “Additional Deductions” page. You can enter your United Nations income in the box “Employment with a prescribed international organization”.

 

To do this in TurboTax CD/Download, select Deductions & Credits>Other Deductions from the side menu. On the “Your other deductions profile for 2019” check off “other deductions”. Then click Continue until you get to the “Additional Deductions” page.
