Can I use TurboTax to file taxes as a resident alien on H1B status?

My visa status changed from F1 to H1B on 11/08/2018. Can I use TurboTax to file my taxes online?
For 2018 I filed forms 1040-NR and form-8843. I have been on F1 visa status since Aug 2015.

The actual number of days I was present in the US:
2016 - 330

2017 - 342

2018 - 365

2019 - 340

2020 >100

Yes, you can use TurboTax to file your 2019 return. You were able to start counting the days present on 11/08/18. Based on the days present in your question, you have met the requirements of the Substantial Presence Test to be qualified as a resident alien for tax purposes.
