Do I complete a K1 if self-employed bona fide resident of Australia with all foreign earned income through my self employment?

From what I understand, Australia and USA have totalization agreement and thus because I pay tax in Australia and pay into the social taxes here, should be exempt. However, Turbo Tax is requiring that I do not enter my self employment income other than profits earned under the Foreign Earned Income Exemption section, but also stating I need to enter it as a K1?

Is your business incorporated ?  Does it file an 1120S and issue you a K-1?

I have attempted to request the Live help person return contact to me twice, but they are not calling. I am based in Australia and believe that this might be the issue.
