My husband and I are considering moving to NJ. I'm going to work remotely from NJ for a company that is in Washington state, which doesn't have state income tax. My question is in such case do I still need to pay state income tax to the state of NJ? Thanks a lot!

If you live here, you do need to pay.

If you live in NJ and work for a Washington based company, but do not commute there, you will ONLY pay NJ tax. Washington's lack of income tax will not help unfortunately.

Even if she did commute to Washington, she'd still pay NJ taxes.

When you live in NJ and work in another state, all that happens is that you pay the state tax of the state you work in, and you get credited for those taxes you paid to the other state on your NJ taxes.

If you don't pay any state tax in the other state, you get $0 credit and you pay your full NJ tax.

In NJ you pay taxes even if you work for a company in another state. I work for a travel agency in NJ, but live in Tennessee where I don't pay Tennessee income tax, since we have none here.
I moved from NJ, all the advantages of not living there!
