Assuming that   (a) you had passed the substantial presence test  by 2017 Dec 31st., (b) your  J visas were terminated when you left the USA and  (c)  you have NO US connected income since your departure -- you can file form 1040 return ( supported by TurboTax ) covering your earnings covering the period Jan 1st through the day of your departure.

If you do have had  or continue to have US sourced/connected income -- then you may also have to file a form 1040-NR  ( not supported by TurboTax ) because you be filing as a dual status  filer --- Sprintax is TurboTax partner for this type of return.

Does this help ?

Thanks. However on December 2018 I did not have a US address or a US phone number. How does it fit to TurboTax format?
