Where do I enter foreign source income (i.e., the amount of mutual fund ordinary dividends from a foreign source) in Turbo Tax? (This is different from foreign tax paid.)

It is somewhat tricky to get to the area to enter your Foreign Source Income.

If your 1099-DIV shows an amount for Foreign Tax Paid, check the box under Box 1b - Qualified Dividends, 'My form has info in more than just these boxes..'. and enter Foreign Tax Paid.

Then in Deductions & Credits, choose Foreign Taxes from the topic listing. 

TurboTax asks if you want to take a Deduction or a Credit, then you come to a screen titled 'Where did you receive the Dividend Income From?' 

You can select RIC for income income received from a mutual fund (screenshot). 

On the next screen, you can indicate that you want to report the Foreign Dividend Income, and link it to your 1099-DIV.

Then you enter the amount of Foreign Source Income (screenshot).

I am using turbotax premier. I click on foreign taxes, but can't get to a screen titled "Where did you receive the dividend income from" nothing looks like the screenshots you included here. I need to report oreign div income from a mutual fund of 147.54. I imported my 1099-DIV right from the source, but this value didn't come through.
