Even though they gave you two W2's you only enter all of the information from one W2 into TurboTax.  Then you take the other W2 and go to the state taxes section of the W2.  Click the box that says "Add Another State"

Then just type in the information from the second W2 in Box 15, the state ID, and Boxes 16 and 17.

I am assuming that every other field on the 2nd W2 matches the numbers on the first one.  That is how most employers handle your situation.  If they truly broke up the work between the states and the numbers are all different then you would enter two separate W2's.  

Please contact TurboTax for assistance if this is not enough information for your situation.

By putting in the same amount of what you earn, does not double the amount ??? I thought that you only had to put box 15 the employer's ID and 17 ??? Thanks @MissMCJ

Do your non-resident state return first.

Then take the credit for taxes payed to other jurisdictions on your resident state tax return

What you doing is showing your state earnings for each state.  By putting in box 16 for each state it will not double anything.  It is the boxes on top that would double up your federal income.  Box 16 only carries to the state returns.  And it will not double up, it will have the right amount on each state return.
