Self employed qualified plan

Where in turboi tax do I include the deduction for my contribution to a solo 401K as a sole proprietor?  It looks like it goes on line 28 of the 1040 but I can not determine where to add it in turbo tax. Thanks

To get to the section where you can enter information for your individual 401k contribution, use these steps:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)

  • This opens a box where you can type in “self-employed retirement” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)

  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to self-employed retirement

  • Click on the blue “Jump to self-employed retirement” link and enter your information
