Does this help at all or is this the same thing you guys have already seen? From:

Yes, we had already seen that. Here's the problem. I'm assuming that motleync was a resident of NC before leaving the country. Generally, once you become a resident of a state, you remain a resident of that state until you can document that you've established residence in a different state. Establishing residence in a different country does not usually terminate state residence. Finally, even if NC allows you to terminate residency by establishing permanent residency in a foreign country, it's not clear that motleync has completed the steps required to establish permanent foreign residency.

Direct questioning of the customer service reps at NC DOR may provide more information, but on issues such as these I prefer going to an experienced tax professional. There are probably some grey areas here and the DOR staff will tell the official position and not the alternative positions.
