2014 Pennsylvania: Resident Credit
A Pennsylvania resident can receive a credit for income tax, wage tax or other tax paid to another state when the other state imposes its tax on income also subject to PA personal income tax in the same taxable year.
Certain Pennsylvania residents, who paid taxes to another state, may have filed an incorrect Pennsylvania tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
