You are not seeing things or having trouble printing.  What you are seeing is the new “postcard size” Form 1040 and its six possible schedules that have replaced the old tax forms.  There are no more 1040EZ or 1040A forms—just the “half page” forms and schedules.

Form 1040

A general guide to what Schedule(s) you will need to file. (See the instructions for the Schedules for more information.)

How to get a copy after filing

https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-get-a-copy-of-a-return-i-filed-thi...

 

Here's an alternate way to print by opening the filed return back up to print at the Print Center, where you can also get the worksheets.

 

Log in and at the Tax Home or in the section Your Tax Returns & Documents for 2020, look for a link Add a State.  Click on Add a State.  (you don't really add one.  That's just to open your return back up.)

 

After the return is open, click in the left menu column on TAX TOOLS, then PRINT CENTER.

Then choose Print, save, view this year's return.

The next screen should offer some options:  Just my tax returns or include government worksheets (optional), or include government and TurboTax worksheets (optional.)
