It depends.

Since all your income will need to be included with your federal income tax return, just input the W-2s for both TX and MA under the federal taxes tab. However, if one W-2 just has your nonresident state information on it and no federal information but relates to a W-2 you already inputted, then you will NOT need to input this W-2 with only your nonresident state information on it separately. Instead, add a line to the state taxes section of the W-2 to which it relates to add this additional nonresident state information.

TurboTax will not always allocate your state wages between resident and nonresident states. When you are working on your MA nonresident state income tax return to report your MA sourced income, you will be able to allocate the total amount of your W-2 income between MA source and non-MA sourced. Since the MA nonresident return asks about nonresident income, just make sure to put your nonresident income (any non-MA sourced income like your TX wage income) in the allocation amount boxes when you are working on your MA nonresident state income tax return.
