Hi guys. We're doing our taxes with TurboTax. In August, we moved from Minnesota to New York. We already did the Minnesota state forms, but now that we're doing New York, it keeps adding in the money we made in Minnesota as well to that. Is that correct? Is there some reason for this?

Thanks,

Alex

Use your MN W-2 for MN state tax and same for NY.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

It won't let him delete the earnings from Minnesota no matter what he does. He didn't enter them; they carried over from when he did Minnesota's. So no matter what it's calculating Minnesota + New York earnings for New York.

We only moved from a no state tax state to a state tax state and from said state tax state back to another no state tax state. If I remember right, we only supplied the income earned while living in the taxing state in that tax form but not the income earned elsewhere. I mean, ain't non of Ohio's business what we earned while we were residents of and employed in another state. I never really figured this state and local income tax thing out. Too much trouble. We just packed and left for non-taxing grounds. ;)

Do you have turbo tax premium? That is helpful.

no it's turbotax basic, like one step up from free.

Seems basically worthless for what you're trying to accomplish. Does NY state have online tax form preparation help? That's how I did Ohio's state and local tax returns. For free.

Alex - see if this helps - http://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/state...rns/article#owe

I am using TT basic too and had some trouble figuring out how to enter unemployment insurance payments. Pretty straightforward in hindsight but the UI is confusing.

I think it's correct. The money you made in MN counts in NY, but you should get a tax credit in NY for the tax you paid in MN (at least, in theory.)

Thanks. I think that's what it suggested on the thing AJ sent. We're going with that answer...

Usually it should credit the taxes paid in MN at the end of the process. You may have to make up the difference if NY has a higher rate (MA does this).

This year I'm filing non-resident NY and part year resident MA... I moved to WA and there is no state income tax. woot!

It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

This is probably still true. I moved from NY to Chicago in 1993 and I was liable for the higher of the two taxes (don't you just love it!) I paid Illinois state tax and then the difference went to NY.

The difference I did not pay that year but rather NY tracked me down three years later and sent me a series of threatening letters until I did......

Yeah. They'll track you down :)

I've filed multiple states for the past 15 years and always made sure I filed. Some people I work with don't and it always catches up with you.
