I assume you probably were on F-1 visa before receiving the H-1B visa approval in 2018.  Once you got your H-1B, if you stayed more than  183 days or met the Substantial Presence Test in both 2019 and 2020,  you are considered as a resident for tax purposes.  You can use TurboTax to file.

That is correct, i was on F1 visa. Sorry for not mentioning that in the original question.
After getting my H1B visa, i did stay more than 183 days in 2019 & more than 183 days in 2020.
i did my 2019 taxes using Turbo Tax & now will also do my 2020 taxes using TurboTax.
Appreciate you taking time & answering my question.
Thank You 🙂
