While entering your 1099-R, record exactly as the form reads. 

Following the form, is a series of questions, verifying your entries.  One of the questions will be verifying your state of residence and the deductibility of the distribution.

 
Also, while in your Virginia state return, go the Income area and verify that the 1099-R information is entered correctly.  You will go to the Deductions section and verify you deductible portion of your distribution.
