The wages I receive are paid through medicaid so they're not taxed. I've been told to enter my wages on line 7 of Form 1040 and enter it again as a negative amaount on line 21, along with the comment "Notice 2014-7".
Where can I enter this information on H&R Blocks free filing software?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the community.
I will see if I can figure this out in the online software for you. In the meantime, online chat support might be able to help you with this.
Hope this helps.

I have spent hours searching and searching for the answer to this and can not find any clear explanation. Very frustrating. Turbo-tax has very clear instructions on how to enter tax exempt income reported on W2 (IRS notice 2014-7) using their software. Why can't H&R do this too? I was hoping to avoid having to go in person to file. Any official guidance from H&R on this would be wonderful!

If your wondering how to report your IHSS W-2 income but not have it included in your adjusted gross income (LINE 37) using the H&R Blockheads software I may have found a solution. (Note: I used the Deluxe version)
First of all, I'm not a H&R Block tax specialist. I'm just a frustrated user like the rest of you. Use this information at your own risk and discretion.
Here is what I did:
STEP 1 - I entered my wife's IHSS W-2 income info and complete the Wages (W-2) wizard.
STEP 2 - I continue the income sources pages/process until you get to "Final Income Items". On the bottom of the page you will see "Other Income". I entered "IRS Notice 2014-7 IHSS EIN########" and the NEGATIVE (-) income amount. If you have more than one other sources of income like I did then you will see the entry in "(Form 1040 Attachment Worksheet)" of the [FORMS] section.
I hoped this helped.

If you go to the "other income not reported elsewhere" section. Under the Excludable Income Not reported Elsewhere, you can enter the amount as a negative number on either the "Excludable Medicaid waiver payments from a W-2 or 1099-Mis. Whiche ever is applicable. On the 1040 it adds in the Notice 2014-Exempt.
