To which of four states do I need to send a tax return this year?
- Michigan: My "permanent address" is here, my driver's license is from here, and I vote here. But I only spent a few weeks in Michigan in 2009.
- Massachusetts: I go to grad school and spent about 8 months here in 2009. I earned a bit of money from a part-time job and will receive a W-2 from it. I plan to leave the state when I graduate this May.
- New York: I lived and worked here for about 2.5 months (in NYC, for city tax purposes). I'll get a W-2 from the employer.
- California: I lived and worked here for about 1.5 months, for the same employer as in New York. I suspect I'll get a separate W-2, though (my pay stubs' cumulative pay started from zero when I moved from NY to CA).
