Why is my military retirement included for my state return when it should not be

This is how to get that subtraction in Maryland and I'll bet a nickel it's the same procedure for NC:

You have to make a certain entry in one of the federal 1099-R pension screens. Go to that 1099-R:

Federal Taxes tab; Wages & Income; I'll choose what I work on; under Retirement Plans and SS update IRA, 401(k), Pension...; Edit that 1099-R; be sure you have "NC" in Box 13; click through 3-4 screens until you get to Where Is This Distribution From? Be sure you have selected Active duty military retirement. That tells TT/Maryland (and TT/North Carolina, I'm hoping) to compute that deduction for you.

If that doesn't work please reply back.
