Just to add a bit to what Phil says, I can give two examples. Suppose you live in New Hampshire and work in Massachusetts. This is common. You fill out a Massachusetts nonresident/part year resident return. But NH has no state income tax -- yet -- so you pay taxes in NH only on your investment income. (As I recall.)Suppose you live in New Jersey and work in New York City. Then you fill out a New York nonresident/part year resident form, which includes the extra-special NYC tax, and a New Jersey resident tax form. You get a credit in NJ against taxes paid in NY, but you never pay less in the way of total taxes than you would if your income were earned all in one state or the other.It's a pain to fill out the multiple state forms (my case happens to have been neither of these two examples), but it's doable. You just have to spare a couple of extra hours and maybe make copies of your W-2's.
