Go to Business tab,

then click continue

I'll choose what I work on

the screen will say, "Let's gather your business info"

click "Update" on the Sch C business you have

then "Edit"

scroll down to "Business Expenses" and click on sub-heading, "Other Common Expenses"

The screen will be titled, "Let's write off some business expenses" and go down to "Insurance Payments" and click update and then enter the amount paid. 

Note:  You must have a profit on the business for it to be deductible.  It will not be deducted on the Sch C but will go to the Form 1040 and be deducted on line 29.
