Using the TurboTax online editions you would need the Deluxe edition or higher to report the Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion on IRS Form 2555 - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/

See this TurboTax support FAQ for Form 2555 - https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901203-what-are-forms-2555-and-2555-ez-used-for
