You do not enter child support paid anywhere in TurboTax or on your federal tax return. It is not deductible nor qualifies for any credit.

You do not enter child support received, as income, in TurboTax or on your federal tax return. It is not income and does qualify for any credit. It is not considered as household income when determining eligibility for the health care subsidy

However, you can record it as nontaxable income in the Sales Tax deduction section if you itemize.
