Maryland State taxes Oversea Military Wages screen poorly worded.

I need assistance figuring out what numbers i need to use to fill out the MARYLAND MILITARY OVERSEAS INCOME WORKSHEET. Turbotax language is confusing and totally inadequate to know what to enter into the field. Federal AGI that is used as MD income already has the non-taxable combat subtracted. That amount is already higher than the allowed $15,000 for MD. Turbotax questions do not make sense as to where to get the correct answer from.

Maryland State taxes Oversea Military Wages screen poorly worded.

To confirm, did you have any taxable amount in box 1 of your W-2, or was all of your income excluded as combat pay? 

 

The taxable amount listed in box 16 from your W-2 should appear in the question on the "Overseas Military Wages" screen. For example, if your box 16 was $20,000 then it should say "...when you earned your military pay of $20,000, you can..." and you will enter $15,000.

 

If all of your income was excluded because you were deployed all year then you will enter $0.
