Wednesday April 6, 2022 – It’s tax time and the battle is on! COVID created a whole class of employees who work in one state (where they live) for a company that has a head quarters in another state. The employee never goes to the company’s state – but the state, where they never go, wants to collect taxes from them.
This is a VERY common question. I answered that question twice today. The answer is much more complicated than you would expect. In fact, New Hampshire brought a law suit against Massachusetts to stop Massachusetts from taxing New Hampshire residents. Last summer, the United States Supreme Court refused the suit to move forward.
So, where does that leave the employee? Well, that depends on where you live – and where your employer is located.
