Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
If you take the distribution while an IL resident you will pay tax to IL State on this distribution. Since you are going to move to CA, you will file CA part year resident state tax return and you will pay tax on the CA state income. However the manner in which the tax is calculated is based on CA tax on your total federal income and than pro-rated to the CA state income for the year.
Let me know if you have any question.
