We live in SC and my husband works in NC. Accordingly, his company is withholding NC taxes on his paycheck. Just wondering how all this works. Will we pay only NC income tax, or be reimbursed or credited if we have to pay SC tax. Any help is appreciated.

You will file taxes in both states, but it is just recordkeeping in SC. Your actually taxes will only be paid to NC.

I have been doing some research and I must be a bad researcher because I can't seem to figure out what percentage the the state income tax is for SC. I know NC is 7% but is SC 7%

You can use TurboTax online for no charge to create a state tax return for any state that has state income tax, doing this will show you what your taxes would be.

OK, so if I understand correctly, are you saying that if you live in SC and work in NC, you pay NC state tax? If so, then why do so many people say that they live in SC for the lower taxes?

Where we live now, if you pay tax to the state in which you reside, regardless of where you work. So I assumed it was the same there.

You pay NC income tax if your money is coming from NC. SC has income tax too, so there is not much of a difference in that regard. SC IS CURRENTLY (and I stress CURRENTLY) lower in property tax, gasoline tax, and some other taxes.

I lived and worked in SC until May of 2008 then I moved to PA but now work in MD. Do I have to file a state return for all three states or just for PA and SC where I had residences?

From Turbotax:

The Basics


Most nonresident state filing situations boil down to these three steps:
  1. Prepare a return for the nonresident state. You will only report the income and withholdings relevant to that state.
  2. Prepare a return for your resident state. You will report all of your income, regardless of where you earned it.
  3. Take a credit for taxes paid to the nonresident state on your resident state return so that you won't get double-taxed on the same income.
For example, if you live in Kansas but work in neighboring Missouri, you would file a nonresident Missouri return in addition to your usual Kansas return. You'd then take a credit for any taxes you paid to Missouri on your Kansas return
