I recently took a promotion at my job that is going to leading me to work in Dover NH. I have been a resident of the state of Maine for 8 years, but I am still living at home with my parents for the time being. For the first part of the year I have worked in Maine and have been paying taxes. I know NH doesn't have tax... And I was just wondering if someone can share me all the information I need to know to go about paying taxes. I don't want to have to worry about owing the government money at the end of the year for not paying the correct taxes. So my question is: What do I do for taxes if I work in NH but I live in Maine?

You should call the Maine Revenue Service and ask them directly. The answer to your question might be available to you on line, as the Maine Revenue Service has a very complete website, as do all of the departments and services of the State of Maine.

You will probably want to pay an estimated tax quarterly, and then receive a refund when you file your return in April. However, you NEED to speak with the people at Maine Revenue Service directly. They will be very helpful.

I believe it goes like this...
Work in Maine--live in Maine--pay Maine income tax
Work in Maine--live in NH--pay Maine income tax
Work in NH--live in Maine--pay Maine income tax
sorry, only way to not pay Maine income tax is to neither live or work here, but I agree, you should hear that from the Maine Revenue Service.
