You are considered as a nonresident for five years starting from the first year when you entered US. IRS will start counting your days from January 1st in your sixth year.  For example, if you entered US in 2010, you would be filing 1040-NR  from 2010 till 2014.  Starting from 2015, if you resided in US for at least 183 days, you are considered as a resident and file form 1040. 

If you are considered as a resident in 2015, you can use TurboTax to e file your 2015 tax return.  Otherwise, you are suggested to use Sprintax to complete your filing.

If I entered in Dec 2014, Would april 2020 be the first year I can file electronically?
