I lived in Indiana until December 1st, 2006 then moved to Maryland. Where do I file state taxes? Both states??

I worked in Maryland the last 3 weeks of December and live there now. I included a W2 from Maryland in my Federal Taxes.

    You should always double check federal and state statutes and regulations. You will also want to verify this with a professional in that field.

    As an (traveling) employee though, I have been told that you need to work at least 6 months in a location to require filling. This is related to where we CLAIM as a work location internally. I'm still employed where I live and not in the place where I technically work.

    If you, on the other hand, have physically moved from one to the other and have received pay in both locations (especially if taxes were withheld) then you will need to file in both.

    I just use H&R Block's online filing system, so it tells me what I need to do.

    I'm sorry, but Coolfinn69 is wrong. If you earned income in a state and lived there, you must file an income tax return for that state (assuming they have one). If you moved to Maryland 1 Dec but were not employed for the month of December then you would file only in Indiana.

    Also, once you moved out of Indiana, they cannot tax your income as you were no longer a resident. Thus you would file Indiana only for the 1st 11 months. IF you worked in MD the month of Dec, then you would file for the 1 month of Dec's income.

  • I am not familiar with Maryland or Indiana tax laws, but if they are like most states, you will need to file in both states. If they follow the typical rules, you will need to file a part-year resident return in both states. When all is said and done, and assuming their laws are similar to other states, you will end up basically reporting the money you earned in each state to that state.

    But you can't just put only that amount on your return for each state. There are probably special forms for your situation.

    Look for a part-year resident return.

    You file an IN part-year return listing the income you earned there. Ditto for MD. Each state is entitled to tax the income you earned while living or working there.

    You have to file in both states, but the good news is that you will get a credit on your state returns for taxes paid to other states.

    you have to file an Indiana Non-Resident/Part Year Resident tax return and a Maryland tax return.

    We did that one year and my husband worked for the same company but it was in 2 different states. We had to do both states for taxes. If they hold out taxes for the state that you now live in - you will have to do the same. Just check with the IRS, they can tell you.

    I would be safe and file in both states.
