Hi,
I moved from New York State to Wisconsin during the course of last year. I have completed my IT-203 (Nonresident/Part-Year Resident) for New York.
My question is, do I need to also file a state return for Wisconsin? I ask this because as a student, I did not earn any job-related income from Wisconsin in 1999, and I paid estimated taxes to the state of New York. My only other income for 1999 comes from dividends on stocks, interest (on cash reserves in my investment portfolio) and some capital gains, all of which I reported on both my federal and New York state forms.
So, do I need to file for Wisconsin, where I've lived since July '99, or can I escape from this potential requirement? Thanks Fools!

All income received while a resident of Wisconsin should be reported to them on a Part-Year Resident return. You need to allocate the interest, dividends and capital gains by time frame of which state you were in instead of simply filing it all under New York.

Your life will be simpler down the road if you file a WI return, even if you don't owe them anything. When the do their matches with IRS data, they'll see a return with a WI address and no WI return, and they'll come a callin' then.
