Why does TurboTax not report PA income on a DE return but it does deduct PA taxes?

I am a resident of DE and my wife and I receive retirement and investment income on which I pay state and federal taxes. I have a natural gas lease in PA that produces substantial income. TurboTax did not include my PA income on my DE return but did deduct taxes paid to PA from my DE return - which resulted in a large refund from DE, which they are refusing to pay until I submit my PA return to them. TurboTax missed the need to send a PA return to DE and did not include the PA income on the DE return as is required. At DE's request, I am submitting my PA return to DE via email and I suspect they will modify my DE return to include gas royalty income from PA and wipe out my refund. TurboTax needs to be updated to handle this situation.

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.
