NJ Credit for taxes paid to another jurisdiction

I live in NJ and worked in PA.   I had no PA income tax withheld for 2020.   But I did pay the City of Reading the 1% income tax imposed by that town for 2020.    It was withheld from my pay and did appear on my 2020 W2.

That tax, paid to Reading, did not appear as a credit paid to other jurisdiction in my 2020 NJ return prepared by Turbo Tax.   Why not?      From what I read in NJ tax regulations, this is a proper credit that can be taken on the NJ return. 

In the Turbo Tax detail of my W2 (boxes 18 -20), it lists that City of Reading tax payment as being “Associated” with NJ.

Insofar as NJ, that is not correct.     


For example, they give credit for the Phila Wage Tax.
