(Schedule 3: Employment, etc) I have added the Tax Value of housing allowance as an Income on TaxTim, but there is no where to add the expenses incurred with this housing allowance.

Your housing allowamce would have been split between a taxable and a non taxable portion on your payslip. Normally 1/3 of your housing allowance is tax free, so you are not taxed on the 1/3. Which is a tax benefit. Therefore you cannot claim any housing expenses against your housing allowance income, as you already received a tax benefit.
