Where can I enter withholding from Form 8288-A? 

Per the Instructions for Form 8288-A

"You must file a U.S. tax return (Form 1040NR, 1041, 1065, 1065-B, or 1120-F) to report the sale or other disposition as effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States. To receive credit for any federal income tax withheld shown in box 2, attach Form 8288-A to your tax return, unless you make a request for early refund."

In a 1040-NR, enter data on the Foreign tab > screen 8288 Statement of Withholding on Dispositions screen to generate and e-file Form 8288-A. In Drake15 and prior, an entry can be made on the Taxes tab > NR screen, line 62.

In a 1065, an entry can be made on the Foreign tab > screen 8804, line 6d.

Note: Other entries may be available. You will need to determine the correct entry as it applies to your taxpayer's return and within IRS guidelines.
