Tax season is in full swing, and if you earned income from another state last year, your taxes are going to be a bit more complex. For expert assistance with your tax preparation, you need Affordable Tax Service in Kittanning, PA. Their tax professionals are familiar with the various state tax filing requirements and will determine whether you need to file a non-resident state tax return.
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
Each 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.
