What about time at JAGS McCartney International Airport GDT/MBGT on Grand Turk?
T&C rules were updated in tzdata 2017c with info from July and August:
+# From the Turks & Caicos Cabinet (2017-07-20), heads-up from Steffen Thorsen:
+# ... agreed to the reintroduction in TCI of Daylight Saving Time (DST)
+# during the summer months and Standard Time, also known as Local
+# Time, during the winter months with effect from April 2018 ...
+# From Paul Eggert (2017-08-26):
+# The date of effect of the spring 2018 change appears to be March 11,
+# which makes more sense. See: Hamilton D. Time change back
+# by March 2018 for TCI. Magnetic Media. 2017-08-25.

It would help diagnose issues if you could provide distro or package version
info and time change diagnostics like:
$ apt list tzdata tzcode
tzcode 2018e-1 x86_64 [installed, manual]
tzdata 2018e-1 x86_64 [installed, automatic]
$ zdump --version
zdump (tzcode) 2018e
$ zdump -Vc`date +%Y`,`date -d'next year' +%Y` America/Grand_Turk
