I filed an extension so that I could meet the Foreign earned Income Exclusion for 2016, I meet the Bonafide Residence test. How do I now file those forms with the IRS?

I worked as an EFL teacher in Korea for a full year during 2016.

I hope you mean Physical presence test -- 330 days away from the USA within a continous 12 month period.  If you tell TurboTax that you have foreign earned income / exclusion-- it will walk you through  filling out forms 2555 and 1116 ( if you have paid taxes on un-excluded income ) -- that is all .  If you need more specific help , please details of your situation -- citizen/ resident,  number of days away from the US in 2016-- when did you arrive in the foreign country,  total foreign income , etc. --- no persoanl information please --- and one of us will help you through the predicament --pk
