Where do I place a tax credit for a Pa return?

You would need to indicate that you paid taxes in both states to ensure you receive a credit for the taxes paid in Delaware on your Pennsylvania return.

 

If you follow/review the steps below, your return will calculate the credit in Pennsylvania for any taxes paid in Delaware on the same income.  

 

To ensure your return is calculated correctly, you will need to confirm a few items: 

 

In the My Info section of TurboTax, confirm that you have entered the correct state information: 

  1. Click Edit to the right of your name 
  2. Confirm your input under #2 Tell us the state(s) you lived in
  3. Go back to the personal information section, and verify the mailing address and "Other state income" section.  Be sure to answer yes to the question asking "Did you make money in any other states?". 

Please note the following as it will affect the calculations: 

 

When you are preparing more than one state return, make sure you prepare the Nonresident Delaware state tax returns first.   Be sure to answer the questions correctly to ensure only income sourced to that state specifically are reported.

 

Once you have entered all of the nonresident state information, then start your Pennsylvania resident state tax return.  This will ensure you receive any credits for taxes on income which may have been taxed in Delaware. 

 

Proceed through the screens in your Pennsylvania return until you see credits and taxes. You should see Taxes Paid to Another State under the Credit for Taxes paid.   You can edit your information here if needed but the taxes paid to the Delaware should be listed in this section.
