I'm missing my Schedule 2 (FORM 1040). How can I get it?

I am a US citizen living abroad (SPAIN)  working for a US Company as an independent contractor, so I get a 1099-MISC. Since I am Spanish Resident, I need to pay Taxes here, including Self Employment Taxes (to the spanish social security system).

 

Following IRS instructions: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/self-employment-tax-for-businesses-abroad  I got my certificate of coverage from the Instituto Nacional de la Seguridad Social that I need to attach as a statement to my taxes, but also I am requested to print “Exempt, see attached statement” on the line for self-employment tax.

 

Adittionally, I need to report my Self-Employment income in turbotax establishing that my self -employment income is subject only to foreign social security taxes and is exempt from U.S, so I did it following this instructions: https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-credits-deductions/discussion/because-you-are-paying-se-tax-to... :

  1. You need to go into the section called "Business Taxes",
  2. Then "Self Employment Tax",
  3. Then "Make Adjustments",
  4. Then for "Other SE Nonfarm Profit (Loss)", enter your business profit as a negative number.

After you print your tax return, you then need to write "Exempt, see attached statement" on Line 57 of your Form 1040  (Now is in Schedule 2 line 4) , and mail your tax return along with your certificate of exemption .

 

Now the problem is that since my Schedule 2 is empty, it is not downloading with the package that I am supossed to send. So, my question : Is there is any way I can trigger this form?
