T4 Form - unsure how to enter

I looked at previous posts about the foreign income section, but when I go to it, it asks if it's a W2, a 1099-misc or self-employment, statement from foreign employer or a k1. None of these apply - the form we got is a T4 and that's all it says. My husband works in racing and worked a race in Canada for a weekend and got paid by the racing organization (they are based in the US and he received a normal W2 for all other work).

T4 Form - unsure how to enter

You would enter the foreign income as follows:

 

1. In the Federal section of TurboTax find Less Common Income in the Wages and Income section

2. Choose Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion

3. Indicate on the 1st screen that you made money outside the USA during the year

4. Indicate that you received "a statement from my foreign employer"

5. Enter your foreign earned income on the screen that says Enter Your Foreign Earned Wages

6. You will be asked if you want to try to exclude your foreign wages, you will answer "no" to that and you will allow form 2555 to be deleted

 

The income will appear on line h of your Form 1040 as Other earned income
