Just got married and bought a home in Durham a few months back. I still live and work in NJ have no income in NC at all. My wife moved down in the Spring and has some income in NJ and NC.

I plan on filing married filing jointly on our federal tax return. From what I have read in the NC state 1040 return it appears that they are asking for total income from the federal return to be counted on her state return. The vast majority of income is mine. Even if she files married filing separately it appears they are asking for income from the joint federal tax return.

Is there any way for her to pay taxes for her NC tax return only on HER income without having both of us filing married filing separately on our federal return?

I don't mind paying my fair share but I can't see paying income tax to NC that I will be paying to NJ already especially since all of my income is earned from a job I work in NJ.

When you file your NC return, you will receive a tax credit for taxes paid in NJ. i.e. no double taxation.

Thanks. Should have looked closer before posting. My NJ income is excluded via the multiplier.
