If I have an investment property in a state other than where I reside, how does that work when it comes to paying state taxes? Live in PA, looking to buy in VA. Would income earned in VA be taxed by the state of VA, but not PA, or would there be double taxation?

Last time I did this, our where we lived didn't have a local tax, so I only paid Federal and the tax in the state the rental was in.

TIA,

Typically, your home state taxes all of your income and then gives you a credit for taxes paid to the other state. That credit is normally the smaller of the actual taxes paid, or the home state's tax on the double taxed income.

So effectively you pay the higher of the two state's taxes on that out of state income.

However, some state pairs work the other way around. The non-resident state gives you a credit for taxes paid to your home state. These are definitely in the minority, but there are some out there.

A fairly time effective way to figure it out is to get the instructions for non-resident VA returns and see what they have to say. Also take a look at your PA instructions, keeping an eye out for a credit for taxes paid to other states.
