If you live in one state and work in another state, which state do you pay income tax to?

Why would it be different. What if I work in a state with no state income tax and live in another state.

Just because of agreements. As an example if you live in pa and work in ny you pay ny. If you live in pa and work in delaware you pay pa.

How to Do Taxes if You Live and Work in 2 Different States

You will pay tax in the state where you live.

OK! So if I go to work in the state with no income tax I need to be able to claim I live there as well to avoid state taxes.

I didn't see him post his state. Did you know what state? Otherwise don't assume. See my post above.

I did not give my state but the link they provided covered it. They listed states with reciprocal agreements and how most without them handle the issue.

But I may have a better idea. If I live in one state part of the year and another state part of the year I only have to pay state tax for the time I live in each state. So I simple live in the non-tax state while I work and move back when off work.

You can only have one primary residence though and that will be determined by time spent.

People play these games all the time but the states are pretty good tracking them to their primary.

Banking ,cell phones,charge cards etc all indicate where you primary is
