Where do I designate that Exemption in Turbo Tax and how do I get it to print on my return (Step 4, Item #10)?
There are no personal exemptions, those were eliminated from the tax code after tax year 2017.
The additional amount added to the Standard Deduction is automatically entered on your tax return by the TurboTax program if you and/or your spouse are age 65 or older. The Standard Deduction is shown on Form 1040 Line 9
