In the TurboTax program, first report your full income. Then you can enter the treaty exempt amount as negative income under "less common income". You will have to file a Form 8833 to claim an exception. As TurboTax does not support Form 8833, you cannot e-file. Instead, you may use Turbotax to prepare your return, but need to print out your tax forms and mail the returns along with the form 8833.
