Resolved Question:

I am a resident of New York State and have recently changed jobs. My emoployer resides in New Jersey and I have been told is not registered in New York State. Thus, they cannot collect or remit taxes to NYS. They did however, withhold New Jersey tax. I am actually working from home, not in New Jersey and am paid on a W-2. Does this mean that I have to pay an estimated tax to NYS quarterly? I am confused about what is required.

Yes, being a resident of NY, you will owe taxed in NY State.

Since the employer does not have a presence in NY, he is not required to register in NY and withhold tax on your wages. YOu will have to pay quarterly tax payments to NYS.

You might want to inform your employer to not withhold any taxes in NJ since your services are rendered from NY and not in NJ.
