Yes I did already see that case and have read the tax form. That is a teleworker case which is not the same as me.
I worked for a Delaware incorporated company with corporate headquarters in Georgia with a branch office in NY. This company employed me as a management consultant and as part of that job I worked at clients and solicited clients in locations in the US
, Canada, and Europe. This is not a teleworker situation where not being in the office was a convenience --- my work was in other places. The non resident tax form supports that I only owe tax for the days I was in NY (or working at home for convenience)--- I am not disputing this or even asking about this now.
They sent me a 40K bill, I contested it, they asked me how many days I was in NY, I said 6, they don't accept that answer so now we are going to conciliation and/or trial and I guess I am gonna have to prove where I was every work day for 2004 or they will assume it was NY.
I am asking about what the audit process is going to be like and what to expect.
I can not go back to Pa and ask for money back because I have not yet paid anything to NY. Assuming Pa would agree that the money is NY's and not their's I still have an issue cause the deadline
an ammended Pa return is this April and I will not be done with NY by then. So I am at about 20k paid to Pa already in income tax and NY wants that 20K plus an additional 20K in interest
and penalties that they managed to assess before even telling me they thought they had a claim.
If someone on here has expereince with the NY audit process, conciliation conferences, audits etc then I welcome that input. This is the type of input I have been unable to find on-line (unlike the tax forms and related court opinions).
I am not sure if this forum can get me this info or not --- just thought I would try.
