How can I apply Chinese student $5000 exemption treaty to the federal tax return of the years (2016 and 2017) before 2018?

I have filed the tax return of 2016 and 2017, but I did not apply this treaty at that time. Can I still apply this treaty to the tax return of 2016 and 2017 now? If so, how should I apply the treaty with turbotax? Thanks.

To claim your exemption, you would have to file amended returns for 2016 and 2017.  If you filed them using TurboTax, here's how to Amend My Return.
