Paying rent won't affect your federal return, so if you skipped that question when you started your return it won't be a problem.You may be able to claim a credit or deduction for rent on your state return. Go through your state return to see if a renter's credit or deduction is offered. Comment back here with which state you are in, and I can help you .
