642(c)(1) Election

I am trustee for trust established October 2017 consisting of stocks and cash.  Most stocks were sold in 2017.  One was sold in 2018.  All proceeds and principal are in a bank, ready to be distributed to 8 different charitable organizations.  The entire trust is for charities. No funds have been distributed thus far.  I want to make a 642c1 election to treat the 2108 sale as part of 2017.  I also want to distribute all funds before October 2018 and include the distribution of income and principle on the one return, making it the initial and final return. I can't find a way to address this in Turbo Tax  I will file for an extension for the short year, 2017 until all of the above is accomplished.  Is this possible?
