How do I enter California domicile information?

I'm domiciled in California but live overseas. I qualify for CA's safe harbor and can file as a non-resident, but turbo tax does not give me a screen where I can indicate days spent in California and/or indicate how much of my income is from CA sources (in my case, none).  TT indicates I am filing a non resident return,  but is treating all of my income as sourced from California.  Why is this?

It looks like this hasn't been addressed in a while.  TurboTaxAnita indicated that a change was made, but someone marked it as unhelpful.  Can anyone confirm that they've successfully used TT to file as a CA nonresident with NO CA sourced income under the safe harbor provision (thereby making themselves exempt from CA income taxes)?  I plan to attempt my taxes using TT soon and would like to know exactly what to expect.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
