How to report mortgage interest income (investment) on 2017 1040 schedule B

Client receives mortgage interest income as an investment. It is not reported on a 1099-INT since it comes directly from the property owner to the client. Client has several of these and has never lived in the houses so it is not Seller Financed Mortgage.

How do I report it on ProConnect Tax Online?

I may be getting just a bit old and senile, but why can't you just list the Name and Amount on Schedule B? Input would look like this. All of this assumes you are not in the business of lending money, in which case it would be reported on Schedule C.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
