Where in turbo tax do I claim the senior tax deduction of $1,650?

It is automatic when you enter your birthday, it is included in your standard deduction.  Taxpayers who are age 65 and older and individuals who are legally blind receive an additional standard deduction. It's calculated by adding the taxpayer's standard deduction based on their filing status, plus an additional amount.
