As a j-1 student, I stayed in the dormitory provided to me by my employer and I paid for it. That's why I wanted to ask if I need to mark the 'I rented a house' option.

Hello, as a j-1 student, I want to receive my tax refund through Turbotax. So I wanted to ask something. During the application stages, I need to state that I 'rented a house' or 'bought a house'. During my time in America, I stayed in the dormitory provided to me by my employer and I paid for it. That's why I wanted to ask if I need to mark the 'I rented a house' option.

If you are a non-resident alien, your return must be filed on Form 1040NR, which cannot be prepared using TurboTax.  You can use TT’s partner, sprintax:
