Why do I need to enter taxes that I paid to another state?

The credit for taxes paid to another jurisdiction is to avoid any double taxation. You may claim this credit if your total income includes income earned in another state(s) and you were required to pay income tax to the other state(s) on that income.

If you earned income in another state that has no state income tax, don't enter the information associated with that income.
