Did you walk all the way through the Michigan interview?  It should ask you about that.

Yes. Multiple times. Revisited the taxes and credits section where it is listed multiple times, but have only ever been prompted/allowed to say I did not make any qualifying purchases.

Is it a resident return or part-year resident return or non-resident?   

I have screen images of the use tax screen and the Forms view of the Use Tax Worksheet but they are for the desktop software (CD/download).

Part-year resident. Also, I am using TT web interface, not desktop. Thanks.

You wrote you "have only ever been prompted/allowed to say I did not make any qualifying purchases."

How did you answer that?  Did you already tell the program that you did not have any purchases subject to use tax?

On final review, it told me I had to fix "Worksheet 1" and took me 'back' there, but would only let me check that box; would not let me indicate use tax by entering purchases.

I've printed my draft return and am manually correcting the use tax, total tax liability, and final amount owed, so giving up on doing that through TT. But appreciate your answers.

Sorry, but I can't run a scenario on the Michigan Use Tax in the Online TurboTax product.  I can only test it in the desktop product (CD/download), which also has the advantage of being able to enter/correct it in Forms Mode.

You can phone TurboTax Support, if you wish, and they can walk through the state interview with you to see what is happening.

You can use the form at the link below to schedule a call back, or it may provide a number.  Hours are 5AM-9PM Pacific (8AM-12 Midnight Eastern) 7 days/week.

I am experiencing the same issue with Michigan use tax for the 2019 tax year.
