Hubby lived (rented a room) and worked in Florida since January 08 while I stayed behind in NJ with the kids to sell our home. NJ house sold in March and we turned around and bought our home in Florida in April. Do we owe state income tax to NJ at all? We are perplexed Thank for any insight!

You need to file a part-year resident return wih New Jersey. Income, deductions and exemptions are prorated based on the period of time in each state. Until you sold your home and purchased a new home in Florida, NJ is your legal domicile. (Hopefully, you also got Florida driver's licenses, registered to vote, etc. when you moved to Florida.)

Previous post is correct - I have moved several times between states. I think TurboTax even has a question about this and will calculate each state's portion.

My husband is our only wage earner. He has been a legal resident of Florida (driver's license, voter registration card etc) since January 07. Do we still need to pay NJ state tax since we owned a house there til 08? Of course we wiol pay NJ if we have to but in this economy we need to hold onto eavery penny

I certainly understand that, but from what you've said so far I stand behind my original post. And most states are a little more diligent in going after the tax owed if the other state of residence is a state, like Florida, that has no income tax itself.
