We received a K1 statement from a MLP (TLP) for which we are an individual domestic partner. We have filled in the K1 information into our CA resident tax forms. However, the K1 lists a few other states[1] where the MLP files its returns. This list does not include our resident state, CA, but does include a handful of other states. We have never received any income from these other states, and have no reason that we would ever need to file a return in these states. The MLP only lists losses for all of these other states.

Unfortunately, the MLP does not give any advice on whether we need to file a state return for these states. How can we find out whether we are required to file state returns for these other states?
