I filled out (or had TurboTax do it) Form 1116 to see if I got a foreign tax credit. The form says I get zero foreign tax credit. I will check the worksheet for Form 1116 to see if I can carry forward any unclaimed credit.

Since I get zero foreign tax credit, should I even bother to include Form 1116 with my return?

I haven't used TT in years, but most software I have used produces only those forms required when you choose the "copy for filing" (or something like that) print option.
