(sum of % for VA, DC, Puerto Rico, Guam shown on Source of Tax-Exempt Income Form from USAA)

Note that this is state by state. Well, PR, Gu, and VI are exempt in every state, by federal law. But I'd never heard of DC being exempt, so I look it up for my state (Mass) and found that DC stuff is indeed taxable here. I thought American Samoa was exempt too, but I guess not, based on what I found.

Line 8b, 1040: $740 (I think this should be $783, but ????)
VA state return shows $740 on Additions line under Federal AGI.

Sounds to me like whatever you did removed the amount from line 8b on your federal return too. It doesn't appear on line 8a either, does it? If it does, you're closer, but it need fixing. If it doesn't, well, it won't change your tax, but you may want to figure out how to get 8b back to $783 while keeping your VA return at $740.
