You would need to buy Turbo Tax Business program to prepare a 1041 return.   Business is only available for Windows Desktop computers.  You can buy 2019 here.  Pick Business on the far right side.

Do you need to file a final personal return ?   If so you need to file a 1040  not a 1041.

The 1041 is only if the estate had income they need to report after the date of death.

If the estate has significant assets, you need to file a Form 1041 for the estate, and you have absolutely no experience in such matters, you should seriously consider having the 1041 professionally prepared.

Before you decide to do it yourself I suggest you read this IRS publication.

 

 IRS Pub 559 (Survivors, Executors, and Administrators) for a lot of good information about filing the final return and estate return and other requirements.
