Schedule C Ministry - Clergy Housing Deduction

Ordained minister with an approved Form 4361 from the IRS, so all the ministry income bypasses the SE Tax.

 

The ministry is centered around pastoral counseling for marriage issues, etc. and the entire ministry is reported on the minister's 1040/Schedule C.  Therefore there is no W-2, or 1099.  Income is gross receipts minus expenses just like a traditional small business.  

The Form 4361 part works just fine, but how can we go about entering the Housing Deduction?  TurboTax looks for the input from the W-2 to trigger the appropriate forms.

 

Thank you for your help.

I use and recommend BJ Worth's Clergy Income Tax Guide. It covers most questions of this type for me.
