NYC does not tax non-residents (thankfully). You do not owe NYC income taxes.
For your reference, NYC taxes are collected on the NY state tax return. If you are an employee, there is no separate NYC return.
I will file NY state tax retrun as non-resident.
Right. And that takes care of the NYC issue.
because I live in pa, my company did not withhold nyc tax on w-2 right ?
a bit confusing. last year I lived in and work in NYC. and NY city tax was not withheld on my w-2. In this case, did i have to file NYC return ?
The NYC is including in your NY state filing. If you were a resident of NYC last year, you should have paid NYC when you filed your taxes. This is regardless of whether or not your employer withheld NYC taxes.
(That is, I think you are all set with regards XXXXX XXXXX for 2010 and 2011).
And yes, they will not withhold NYC tax on a non-resident of NYC.
sorry to ask you again. Actually I lived in only one month in NY last year. In this case, also i do not have to file nyx tax return ? thanks
The NYC is including in your NY state filing. If you were a resident of NYC last year, you should have paid NYC when you filed your taxes. This is regardless of whether or not your employer withheld NYC taxes. - it means that I should have paid nyc in ny state tax return instead of separate nyc tax return ? right
If you lived in NYC for one month, then you would report that you were a resident and NYC and NY for one month, and a non-resident for the other months. This would result in your owing NYC tax on your wages for that month.
Right. For the most part, there are a few line items on the NY return that refers to NYC. That's basically it.
okay than you for your help
