Illinois Schedule NR (Non-Resident)

We relocated from IL to NV during 2019. Based on the date of our relocation, TurboTax entered only a portion of my W-2 wages in Column B (Illinois Portion) of my Nonresident and Part-Year Resident Computation of Illinois Tax (Schedule NR). I received a Return Correction Notice from the State saying that "Wages earned in Illinois are taxed by Illinois regardless of your residency when you earned these wages." Did TurboTax make a mistake here, or did I do something incorrectly.

The program pulls over the full amount and asks you to enter the correct amounts.

Thank you for the reply, but the program could use some improvement here. The question asked is: "How much of the $xx,xxx did you earn while living or working in Illinois?" "Living or working" is a link which in turn requires choosing between two other links and then looking at Example 2. I would argue that the initial screen should at least include the simple text that my Return Correction Notice included: "Wages earned in Illinois are taxed by Illinois regardless of your residency when you earned these wages."  I don't remember distinctly, but I doubt I even followed those links because when I saw "living or working in Illinois," my answer was that only the wages earned before my relocation date should be entered. The argument made in the instructions is that I was working in Illinois without living there and must be taxed on the full amount, but I thought of it as I was working in Nevada for an Illinois employer, i.e. I was not working in Illinois.
