I do not want to screw the IRS, as that is scary. At the same time I travel a lot. Nominally I have an apartment in NYC that is "home," and I pay high city tax and state tax rates. I have been AirBnB'ing the apartment and basically living with my girlfriend when I'm home. For business I travel a lot, to the point where I have begun renting cheap bachelor pads to not be living in a hotel all the time. Can I claim residency in those states? [more inside]

I'm trying to find a list of US medical residency programs and the average step 1 scores of the applicants that are accepted into each program. Google has not been helpful. I've found match rates, quotas, test scores by specialty, and all sorts of other data. But nothing about test scores by residency program. Does anyone know if this data exists and where I can find it? Thanks in advance.

Changing my residency from NJ to CT. Simultaneously purchasing a used car to replace a NJ registered, just totaled car (for which I still have plates).

I, a U.S. citizen, married a foreign national some time ago and helped her obtain conditional permanent resident status as a result of the marriage. I subsequently discovered that she had no intent of engaging in a legitimate marital relationship with me and, instead, had married me for the sole purpose of becoming a permanent resident of the United States. Upon this discovery, I filed for an annulment but was instead granted a divorce (details inside). My immigrant ex-wife will soon need to apply (via the I-751 process) to convert her "conditional" permanent resident status to "true" permanent resident status if she wishes to remain in the United States legally (which she does). I do not know whether she will be granted this status, but I would like to find out whether or not she does attain it. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might find this out? [more inside]

Have I missed anything that might enable a California university to deny me in-state tuition? [more inside]

I'm trying to figure out where I should establish residency. I'm currently a NJ resident because I lived in a co-op apartment that I own there for about 5 years; I have been renting it out for about 2 years now. My current official mailing address is still in NJ (at a UPS store, so it just looks like a regular address). For the past year-ish, I've lived in CT in a house my father owns. Going forward, I will be living half of the time with my fiancee in Brooklyn and the other half here in CT. So, where is the best place for me to establish residency? [more inside]

My friend's mother has lived in Florida for over 20 years in a home that she owns outright. Three years ago her mother moved to a different state so she could live in an independent-living facility near her daughter. She kept her house in Florida, she paid all applicable Florida property and income taxes, and she voted absentee in Florida. Her income comes from Social Security, a pension and investments. My question is, should her mother be paying taxes in the state that she is living in now? Also, when she dies, should her estate be managed as though she had lived the last years of her life in Florida?
