Gross income adjustment

The page "Gross Income Adjustment" asks to enter any adjustment either negative or positive. I don't know what to do here. Does the calculated amount include the wages, dividends, etc.? Is the amount shown here usually correct?

Gross income adjustment

It depends on the state.  This screen appears in state returns.  Most "normal" items are automatically adjusted in TurboTax.  However, if you have rental income, Self-Employment income, or other income made in another state, you may have to make certain adjustments manually.  If all of your income comes from your home state, TurboTax probably has made the adjustments for you already.  However, if you wish to provide the state you live in, I'd be happy to provide more information on the what types of adjustments may apply to you.

I live in CA and have rental income in Oregon. 
What should I be entering on this page ("Gross Income Adjustment")?
