States impose a tax for work performed within their borders. So if you are traveling to customer's you could potentially be paying tax in several states.
Typically your resident state will give a credit for taxes paid to another state. This way your income isn't taxed more than 100%.
You should ask your employer on if they will file a W-2 for in several states.
Maryland top rate = 5.5%
Penn = 3.07%
WV = 6.5%
VA = 5.75%
These are top rats but Penn is definitely the lowest. We would still need to factor in property taxes and sales tax.
Thank you for this, it's what I thought from talking to people, but without the actual numbers. This information combined with the knowledge that PA doesn't tax my military retirement helps with our decision. Thank you for the quick response.
Your are welcome and let me know if I can be of any other help.
