I am retired from Nynex in NYC and live in New Jersey. I recently exercised some Nynex/Bell Atlantic stock options from a few years ago and when I got my statement it showed they had taken out NY State & City taxes. When I called the company that processed it they said my last work location was in NYC so that is why they took tax out. I feel this is a mistake but can't get an answer from anyone. If it is how do I get the tax money back? And if it is not why should I have to pay? My pension check comes out of NY and they don't tax that. Please help if you can.
