Sup all,

If this isn't the place for this question, I apologize in advance.

Here's the story, I live in Oregon but for the past several years, worked in Washington state.

In the third, final and "corrected" W-2 the company finally sent, state wages are listed under Washington (there's no income tax in that state, I think), and that's the only box with a number in it, and Oregon (again, my place of residence) shows only the State Income Tax paid, nothing else.

(For those of you with your own W-2's nearby, box 16 lists two states, WA and OR -- box 17 is filled in the WA row and box 18 is filled in the OR row.)

Is this correct? I'm only asking now because the company sent me 3 W-2s in all this year, the first two followed by a "whoops, we screwed up" letter and in last year's W-2, my income and state tax was only shown for Oregon.

confusedly yours,
