Wife and I live in seperate states(me GA, her NY), we are graduate students. Im trying to figure out our taxes. We are filing jointly for federal, but we need to file 2 states. My wife was a part year resident of GA then moved to NYC to do her internship. Im wondering who we deal with the AGI from our federal (combined income) for each state.

I hope one of you is studying math, because you're going to be doing a lot of it. You'll have to check the instructions for both states to see what your options, if any, are, and then do the calculations to see how you should file. Every state is free to make its own rules about your situation.
