No. Sorry.

 The IRS won't let you deduct rent for your personal residence


However, rental expenses for your business as well as expenses related to rental property you own are deductible.

A handful of states have some type of renter's tax credit for a personal residence or apartment. If your state is one of them, we'll asks rent-related questions when you go through your state interview.

Follow this link if you'd like to contact your state directly.  If your state offers a renter's deduction, then the Turbo Tax software will prompt you to enter it.
