Moved to USA part way through 2014. Do I still have to fill out a Statement of World Income?

I moved to the USA to work part way through the year. Why is TurboTax asking me to fill out a Statement of World Income if it states "you were a non-resident of Canada or a deemed non-resident of Canada for all of 2014".

The part that gets me confused is "all of 2014". I only was a non-resident for part of 2014. Technically I emigrated from Canada to the US (temporarily - TN Status) in 2014, and it seems like TurboTax doesn't support this.

If you moved for good you should file part year residency showing your departure date and reporting worldwide income up to that date. If you moved temporary, you should file a full year residency and show full year worldwide income

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.
