For the 1099-Int form, Texas is not on the list to select in box 15. Turbo Tax asks me to select my state, but I can not select Texas because the option is not there.

For the 1099-Int form, Texas is not on the list to select in box 15. Turbo Tax asks me to select my state, but I can not select Texas because the option is not there.

On your 1099-INT, lines 15, 16 and 17 refer to how much tax is withheld to apply against your state income tax. Texas doesn't have an income tax, so all three boxes should be blank.

 

It does happen that sometimes the software that prints the 1099-INTs automatically puts in the state code whether or not it is needed. In this case, just don't enter the state code in box 15 when you enter your 1099-INT, and blank it out if it is already there.

 

This is an exception to our general mantra of "enter everything you see".

Texas does not have an income tax. Leave W2 boxes 15-17 Blank.
