If you are a chaplain and your employer doesn’t exclude contributions made to your 403(b) account from your earned income, you may be able to take a deduction for those contributions on your tax return.

However, if your employer has agreed to exclude the contributions from your earned income, you won’t be allowed a deduction on your tax return.

If you can take a deduction, include your contributions on line 36 of the 2018 Schedule 1 (Form 1040). Enter the amount of your deduction and write "403(b)" on the dotted line next to line 36.

NOT HELPFUL. The amount is NOT on my W-2 because it was NOT contributed through my employer.

Sorry I mis-read the question.  Tell me how you made these and do you have your own business?

I have an employer where I earn the wages, but the employer refuses to make the contributions from payroll deduction. So, I have to make the contributions on my own as a clergy person employed in a healthcare setting. I make the contributions from my bank account directly to my 403b7 account at Fidelity.

I talked with 3 or 4 that work here and the above is what was found, on how to handle this and I do apologize for misreading the original question.

The answer is helpful. But, when I override the amount on line 36 it results in an error at the end of the process. The message warns that I cannot submit the form electronically because the electronic cross-checking won't work. So, I am mailing my return.  Thank you for your help.
