If you are a self-employed and want to claim your rent paid as a home office expense, refer to the following steps: 

Log in to your account and edit your current return --> Income --> Self-Employment --> create your profile --> you can enter your expenses under rent while filling in the form T2125. 

For further clarification please check out these two links:

In this case, you can follow this video about the Home Office Expenses for self-employment.  Firstly, you should be enter how many room in your home did you use for work?. Then in the next page, they have a table about the expenses for this room. Enter the cost for that one here as the video guide. 
For further information, please see our TurboTax article: How do I claim home office expenses?
