Hello all...
I currently live and work in stamford, CT but I really want to move to NYC and experience the life there. I will continue to work in Stamford, CT.

I know this topic has been discussed a few times, but what would be the tax implications? I know I will be taxed by NY, too....but will that just be the 3.65% resident tax on my paycheck? Any other implications?

I currently make ~75k and it doesn;t sound like a bad idea as I would not be making my car and insurance payments if I move there.

Also, I'm guessing, if I have to get the same amount of money WORKING in NY I get now working in CT (after tax), I would have to be making roughly 85k. What do you guys think? Any help would be much appreciated. I really want to make that move.

Of course, if you live in the city, you'd be taxed as a resident and not at the non-resident rates.

Fred, thanks for the response. I was actually interested in knowing how much in taxes would i be paying. What percentage of the paycheck would go towards NY taxes? If you have an idea, that would be great. thanks again.
