For Form 255, there is a covid exemption for the bona fide time. to claim it, need to insert "Revenue Procedure 2020-27" on top margin of form. How do I do that?

After you enter your foreign earned income, you will come to a screen that says "Choose How to Qualify for this Exclusion." On that screen select "I reasonably expected to meet the Bona Fide Residence Test, but failed to do so due to the COVID-19 emergency." TurboTax will then insert the required notation at the top of the form. Here is a screen shot.

Thank you.  Unfortunately, that screen does not appear.   I already selected a test for 2019, and it just imported that.   Suggestions?
