In Colorado, the federal exclusion of the first $10,200 of unemployment benefits is still taxable for 2020. Is this amount added back as an adj. for the state return?

Yes, Colorado is taxing unemployment in full so you must add back the federal exclusion.

I'm not sure which screens you are referring to.  You will enter your 1099-G (unemployment) form in the federal portion of the return and it will be carried over to your state return.

Assuming you live in Colorado, you will enter the amount of unemployment you received in the Colorado boxes here.  If the amount of unemployment received was greater than $10,200, you will enter the maximum amount of $10,200.

I do not live in colorado but earned unemployment in colorado   so I can enter -10200 in for colorado on screen 1 and then 10200 on screen number 2 since that affects colorado

Yes, because that amount is attributed to Colorado.
