How do I put my 1098 E in my taxes?

In TurboTax (TT), enter at:

Federal Taxes Tab (Personal for H&B version)

-Scroll down to:


  -Student Loan Interest paid (form 1098-E)

It is an adjustment to income (above the line deduction). So, you do not have to itemize to get the student loan interest  "deduction".
