Purchased a condo in Ohio where our eventual retirement home will be.

I am still working in south Georgia and would estimate I spend 70% of my time living here. I do have residence and post office box in south Georgia.

My wife is fully retired playing grandma so she spends 75% of her time in Ohio and what we do is both fly back and forth so we are together for much of the time.

Of course I will pay federal and state taxes on our total income, our SS will be taxed due to earnings, but if I understand it correctly I would pay Georgia's income tax and not Ohio because more than 50% of my time is spent here.

Also, Ohio cities love their little city income taxes and I don't want to pay that.

Am I correct on the 50% thing?

you are considered a full time resident if you are there more than 50%. However some states have agreements if it is earned income . You pay taxes sometimes to the state you earned your income to.

Live in pa and work in ny you pay taxes to ny first. Live in pa and work in maryland you pay taxes to pa first

I do not know the rules for Ohio and GA but in general

IF you were single I would pay taxes in GA assuming you work in GA and "Vacation" in Ohio.

Since your wife is a resident of Ohio she would pay taxes to Ohio on her income.

Their could be state rules that say if you file a joint Federal return you have to file a joint state return.

Your facts seem simple but the problem is complex and I am interested in seeing the answer

How about couples that live in an RV and travel about the country?

They establish "residency" in one of the States that cater to RVers. (and don't have a State income tax)

This webpage goes into the details involved:

"There are three states that are very popular amongst full-time RVers because they offer substantial savings when you choose to establish your residency within them. Those states are Florida, Texas, and South Dakota."
