The system as currently delivered cannot handle the required tax calculation for the scenario of work MD
and live in a state with the 5th radio button in state tax reciprocity--AZ,DC, PA, VA, WI, WV.

<BUG:11094526>  delivered in tax update 04-F, resolved the issue at that time. It appears that this is broken again, with different results between 8.81 and 8.9.

At the state reciprocity level,  we deliver the 5th radio button--"do not withhold for the work state..."  The intent is that there is no MD SWT taxable gross or tax taken.
At the local reciprocity level, the intent is for the system to take both the resident  local and the nonresident MD tax, per the MD website:
The system cannot handle having just a nonresident MD local in EE tax data.
In 8.81, this triggers the COBOL error where MD SWT is calced with just the amount of the MD SWT (vs the combined SWT + LWT for a correct resident setup). Also, a row for MD LWT is calced in error with the amount of the combined MD SWT + MD LWT.
In 8.9, only one tax calc row for MD is created on the check, the "local" row, but it is calced with both the SWT + LWT amount, and should be just the base 6% amount.
