Were are the property insurance premiums entered, is there a form? if so do the forms differ for residence and rental?

For the rental, property insurance is entered on Schedule E.

On your personal residence property insurance is not deductible.

 

To get to Schedule E in TurboTax:

 

Open or continue you return in TurboTax 

Select Wages and Income 

Next to Rental Properties and Royalties select Start or Update 

Select Expenses insurance is listed with Common Expenses
