In TurboTax Home and Business to apply the Resident of a foreign country or US Territory penalty exemption do the following:

  • Click Personal
  • Click Federal
  • Click Health Insurance
  • Select I'll pick and choose which months
  • Click Continue
  • Select the Months you had insurance and click continue
  • Select Resident of a foreign country or US territory
  • Click Continue
  • You will get a message saying your penalty has been waived for those months you were not a resident
