For tax purposes, the Feds don't seem to care. I'm getting ready to do our 2nd year of two-state income tax, and it's made no difference on our federal taxes.

State taxes are a whole 'nuther ball game. Since FL doesn't have income tax, he needs to read through the RI tax information. I'd probably suggest figuring the tax as both a resident (part-year) and a non-resident so that he understands how each works.

Unless TurboTax has a "snowbird" check box, it probably assumes that he moved. He would still owe part-year taxes to RI.

See to find all the applicable forms and instructions.

State taxes in >1 state is a pain.
