<<First, you and your wife are residents of Virginia. She is working in Virginia. She should not be paying NY taxes at all. Her company's Payroll Dept. needs to be contacted to correct this error. In any event, when you file taxes, you will file a NY return, stating you were never a resident of that state. When you file VA taxes, you will file a resident return for the entire year, and will take the amount of NY taxes paid as a credit.

However, I would strongly suggest that the company get its act together.

First off, THANKS to all of you who have given me some advice on this subject. Here are a couple of points for inclusion (one we just found out about):

1. When my wife asked about this of the company, they gave her the old "we aren't set up to take out VA taxes, so we take out NY instead".

2. I agree that they need to get their act together, but the paycheck is good enough not to rock the boat too much.

3. A newly hired co-worker of my wife is in the exact same situation (on-site consultant in living and working in VA employed in New York). Her accounting counsel, father with CPA, told her to have the company stop taking out NY taxes. She argued with the HR department and won. This validates one of the later posts.

So, our next step is to have them cease and desist taking state taxes out of her paycheck and start paying estimated VA taxes?

I'll pick up some other to-do's from later posts.

Thanks again.

Ulti.
