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.

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

- In the Find window, type Other.
- Select Other Deductions from the list, and select Go.
