Well, first off, you are eligible to take a tax credit on your WI taxes of all the taxes paid to NE.
You are having a Nexus fight with Wisconson. There's no silver bullet in these things. And as you note, you didn't re-register your car, drivers license, etc.
Where did you register to vote?
Please note that you have appeal rights on this process and you can take the matter to the WI appeals division and fight this all the way.
I would give them proof of your Nebraska residence, too.
we have not registered to vote, no elections in nebraska to worry about until this fall. i can give them copies of my W-2's, bank accounts, power bills, etc.... that all show my nebraska address. will that help??
It all helps. Also, you have a lease or a deed in Nebraska.
we purchased a lot to build on, i could show that, but i think the apartment leases would be better
No, purchasing land in NE would help too.
If you signed an agreement with a building contractor that would be helpful.
I would show proof of listing your house in WI. That it was on the market.
ok, should i attach that to both the 2010 and the 2011 return? i had planned on filing the 2011 electronically this weekend, but i could file by mail and attach more documents
No, I would just e-file as usual. Are you filing a non-resident WI return or none at all?
All this documentation goes back to WI with your 2010 reponse.
for 2010 i filed as resident, because i still had my house, for 2011 i was going to file as a part time resident, but i suppose i could file as a resident of nebraska.
What did you file in NE? a non-resident?
So what's the argument, you already admitted you're a resident. Now you want to argue you aren't?
If you're a resident you report ALL of your income from any state you earn it.
for 2010, non resident in nebraska. i have not filed for 2011, but i was going to file as a part time resident for nebraska
no, just trying to figure out the rules. i have working here since december 2008, just could not sell the house
so botXXXXX XXXXXne: 2010 resident of wisconsin, non-resident of nebraska. 2011 resident of nebraska, non-resient of wisconsin, does that sound right?
Yes. You got it.
