No.  Tennessee does not have an income tax on earned income (salary or wages).  In the Personal Info section, answer No to the question about earning income in another state.  All your income is taxable by your home state of GA.

Shouldn't that say "Answer Yes to the question about earning income in another state"?

TurboTax will accept TN as an answer under "Other State Income", but there is no TN personal income tax.
