I Looked on the Revenue site but was unable to find this info.

When will I no longer be considered a resident of Billings MT,

Is it when I leave to work another job

When I sell my house,

When I leave with my stuff after I sell my house?

The revenue dept had a real problem with when we came to Montana
in March of 2007, they thought we should claim the whole year, even though we didn't bring our "stuff" and start working until March 2007,

so I am thinking they are going to give me a hard time when I "leave"
to work elsewhere?

Any ideas or suggestions, would be great.

Sorry we have to leave, but have to leave for work.

I'm not sure what you are asking? You pay income tax in the state you are working. I've worked in 9 states in one year and paid income tax in each one. Some are deductible in each state and some are cumulitive.

Yes I agree EH, it has to do with where the income is generated. Montana has a part year form that I had to use since I earned income in two states the first year.

You no longer are a resident, when you physically move to another state and start work there. The grace period usually is 30 days in your new state. At least that's what it was when we left MT for SD, then later for CO. MT revenue has a problem with everyone that start a mid-year job just like you started 01 Jan

Okay well let me ask it this way,

We lived in State A, but Worked in Colorado, we had to pay State Income Tax on the money we EARNED in Colorado, even though we didn't live there.

So I wondered if we are working elsewhere, will Montana expect us to pay state income tax on the money we earn in another state, because we still own a home in Montana (at least until we sell it)
and

even though I claim part year resident for 2010, will they expect to get paid state income tax on that money?

I plan on changing my drivers license and voting status within a few days of moving to the next state, so there isn't any confusion that I am no LONGER a resident here.

I just wasn't sure with the home ownership? Does that simple fact make me still a resident?

The amount of money you earn in a state is what you pay for that state in State income tax (if they have state income tax). Your employer reports what you earned and also sends the W2 to you.

Federal tax is going to be based on annual earnings. But do all your taxes at the same time because what you pay in Federal can be deducted off of some state income taxes.

Don't remember how Montana handled it because the last time I worked there was in 1972. Remember, memory is the second thing to go.
