3 Tips for Filing a Non-Resident State Tax Return

1. Identify Income Sources

Non-resident state tax returns apply to anyone who earned income from a state in which they did not reside. This may include wages earned when working — but not living — in another state. It may also include rental and other property income from other states, gambling winnings, or income from an S Corporation or partnership.

2. Determine State Income Threshold Requirements

Tax PreparationEach state has different requirements for reporting income. In Pennsylvania, for example, non-residents who earned more than $33 from companies based in the state must file a state tax return. Not all states have income tax, though, and many have much higher thresholds than Pennsylvania. This can make your tax preparation even more confusing.
