You would set it up as a rental and then TurboTax will ask if rented at Fair Market Value (FMV) and if it is you can deduct expenses in excess of income and have a loss.

If not and is rented below FMV then the expenses are deductible only to income.

TurboTax will help you in computing this.  You will need TurboTax Premier to do this correctly.
