Balance Due on State Tax Return

I'm trying to enter the balance due on 2011 state returns.  Last year I received a reund from NC but had to pay VA.  Turbotax won't let me put "0" for NC and won't let me click on "Next State".  It says in red " Please make an entry below".  If I leave itblank or type in "0" and it won't let me progress.  How do I do this?
  • state tax is due now how to pay ?
  • It varies, depending on the state.  Generally, there is a payment voucher with your state return.  Print it and mail along with payment to the address on the voucher.

I see the issue you are referring to, and will send a note to the powers to be to take a look at it.  In the meantime, for a workaround, try this:
-Enter an amount for for NC, any amount.
-Click Next State and enter your information for VA and click 'Done'.
-It will take you back to the 'Estimates and Other Income Taxes Paid' page.
-Scroll to the bottom to
"Balance due on your 2011 state taxes paid in 2012".  Click the 'Update' button.
-It will take you back to the page to where you entered the NC amount.  Put zero, and click "Done".

That will zero out the NC amount and you should be good to go.

      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.
