Correct.  You will want to treat the two pages as if they were one.  You may enter box 15 as MD, and follow up with the amounts in boxes 16 and 17 for MD (if there are amounts in boxes 16 and 17.  If not, but there are amounts in boxes 18-20, you will not enter state information for MD, but rather local taxes on the lines beneath this.)  However, if you do enter Maryland state income and taxes, then you will click on "Add another line" right underneath that.  You will then enter the Delaware information.

When you do your state taxes, you will want to prepare the Delaware nonresident return first.  Maryland also taxes your income but will give you a credit for the tax you must pay to Delaware.  Preparing Delaware first makes it easier for TurboTax to calculate the credit accurately.  Here is an FAQ with more information:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3302052

Thank you but how then after doing so as you suggest I still owe DE tax? Shouldn't I get a full credit for taxes I paid to DE since I lived in MD full year 2019. Last year I didn't owe DE anything and this year I do. We made pretty close to the same income as in 2018.
