When claiming rent paid out for 2018 what form do I use?


There is not a rent deduction or credit on your Federal return.  If your state has anything for renters you will be prompted to enter your rent info when you complete your state return.  As far as I know, the states that have anything for rent are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

There is no federal credit or deduction for rent paid.  Some states have a renter's credit; if you live in one of those states you'll be asked about it when you do your state return.
