How do I elect the qualified revocable trust rule for form 1041 in TurboTax for Business in order to eliminate the calculation of an underpayment penalty?

The rule allows a trust, which is the recipient, of a decedents estate to avoid payment of estimated taxes for two years following the date of death.
