Your commuting expenses between CT and NY are not a deductible expense.
As far as your taxes, the amount that is deducted from your check will depend on how you fill out your W-4 form. That will determine the amount the employer withholds for federal and state taxes.
If you are filing your taxes as a single person with only yourself as a dependent, then your taxable income
would be around $26,050. Your taxes on this amount would be approximately $3,500 for federal tax
, $1,785 for NY state tax and $2,677 for your share of social security and medicare
taxes. You should fill out your W-4 form as single with one exemptiion in order to acheive this level of withholding
Since you reside in CT you will also need to file a state tax return with CT, but you will be given credit for any state tax you already paid to NY, thereby eliminiating any double taxation
on the same income.
