tax question - work in Louisiana for a company in Massachusetts



Quick question -

I moved from Massachusetts to Louisiana on Feb 1, but continued to work for the Massachusetts company from my home in LA for the next 6 months. I'm a bit confused as to whether I pay MA taxes on this income, or LA taxes.

For what its worth, I'm using turbotax.

TIA.

2013 or 2014?

If 2013, and you get a W-2, what does it say?

The general rule is, you are taxed on all income earned in your home state (where you are domiciled) and you are also taxed on income in a state where you perform work if it's not your home state.

This is one of those times where it may be worth it to hire a tax pro.

This is the only way I've ever seen it done.
