I don't know how to add First Time Home Buyer Installment Payment to the taxes please someone help.

How do I add or remove Form 5405 for the first-time homebuyer credit?

Form 5405 (Repayment of the First-Time Homebuyer Credit) figures the repayment amount (actually, an additional tax) for the 2008 First-Time Homebuyer Credit. The 5405 is also used to notify the IRS that the home was disposed of or ceased to be your main home.

Here's how to enter — or delete — Form 5405:

1.     Open your return by selecting Take me to my return on the home screen.

2.     On the left side menu, select Federal.

3.     On the upper menu, select Deductions & Credits.

4.     In the list below, select Shoe more next to Your Home.

5.     Select Start or Revisit next to Homebuyer Credit Repayment.

6.     On the Tell us about your homebuyer credit screen, answer Yes to the first question (it was still your main home on January 1, 2018).

o    To delete an unwanted 5405, answer Yes to the second question (it stopped being your main home). Then select Continue and answer Yes on the next screen. You're done.

7.     Enter the purchase date and then select Continue.

8.     Follow the onscreen instructions.
