Form 2555 line 14 "Days in US on Business"

Line 14 (part of phisical presence test) requires you to list time you was in US during the year. So some reason it does not allow 0 as input for number of days on business.

I did not find anything that supports this requirement. 

Case "I worked abroad, visited US on holidays so no US-based income was recieved" cannot be correctly reflected.

I can input 1 day on business 0 usd income, but that would not be 100% correct. Can you please change that form.

This applied to TurboTax Online, Turbotax Deluxe.

(It is also the same for Turbotax 2018, which will require me to basically re-do the form 2555 manually)

If your  answer is zero days, then leave the field blank.  The program will calculate that as a zero.

It turns out it allows you to do blank fields but does not allow you to input 0
