State ID for Box 8?

Form 1099-INT Worksheet for Schedule B is asking for a State ID for Box 8 for the State where interest was earned. I am fairly sure the answer is "more than one state" but the box is not allowing me to type in anything but a 2 letter state abbreviation. What should I do? Just enter my home state?

State ID for Box 8?

It depends.  If the interest is from a multi-state bond fund, you can enter XX to represent more than one state.  If the interest was from a bond issued in your home state, or a mutual fund that only invests in your home state, enter the abbreviation for that state.

Yes enter home state in box 8 if your Form 1099-INT does not have a state abbreviation in box 8.
