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.   

-  Enter the treaty exempt amount as negative amount ( -5000) under  Federal Taxes / Less Common Income /                      Miscellaneous Income 1099A, 1099C / Other Reportable Income

-  File a Form 8833 from IRS to claim an exception.  https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8833.pdff
