North Carolina 2011: Interest Income from U.S. Territories
North Carolina taxpayers who had interest income from a U.S. territory may be eligible to avoid paying North Carolina state tax on that income in certain circumstances.
Certain customers, who received interest income from a U.S. possession and had a corresponding state deduction, may have filed an incorrect North Carolina tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
