I lived in New York from January through March 2008, where I worked in finance. I moved there originally in August 2007. I became disabled and had to move back home to Greensboro in April, where my parents live. I started receiving Social Security in November while living in Greensboro.

For 2008, you were a part-year New York resident and part-year North Carolina resident.

For 2007, you were a part-year New York resident and part-year somewhere else (presumably North Carolina) resident.

Presumably for 2009 you will be a full-year North Carolina resident, but 2009 isn't a closed book yet.

For 2008 and 2007, you should have filed NY form IT-203. There's a calculation on it for allocating numbers between NY and the other state or states you lived in; if all your income was in NY, it will produce a similar result to being a full year resident. (There are some credits that part-year residents aren't eligible for, and there may be some other differences that I'm not familiar with.)

Finally, I received Social Security in November and December while I was living in North Carolina, reported on a SSA-1099. This was the only income I received while in North Carolina. Do I have to file separate NC income taxes? I'm not sure if Social Security is taxable at the state level.

Social Security is not taxed by New York. It will appear on your New York return as a number from your federal return, then get subtracted out.

I'll have to defer to someone with specific North Carolina knowledge on the filing requirements there.
