I moved from CA to VA on 11/1/02. I was unemployed from 9/02 through 1/03, and received Unemployment Insurance from CA during that period.I just finished up my Fed and CA State returns, and in the CA part-year resident state return it asked for the portion of income, interest, and dividends that were earned while in CA, from a CA source (eg CA Gov't), or from earnings while in CA (for int/div). From my interpretation, this would be all my earnings (income while in CA, payments from CA gov't for unemployment, and int/div based on income earned in CA, even though living in VA for last two months).So, question is, do I need to file a part-year resident tax return in VA?It's asking the same questions, amount earned while a resident of VA (although apparently not making an exlusion for the amount from another state gov't). Do I file a return in VA for 0 across the board? Or do I need to tell VA what CA paid me while in VA and apply for a tax credit of some sort (for taxes paid to another state)? Or skip VA all-together?I realize the knowledge of specific state tax laws may not be as deep as Federal here, but if anyone has thoughts on the generic process of state-to-state moves and taxes owed for partial year residencies..Thanks.
