Im trying to file my tax and Im confused to the state to file

This answer was rated:

Im trying to file my tax and I'm confused to the state to file it with. I started working in DC last year but lived in FL. My W2 was sent to my FL address since that was my primary address last year. We decided to move to MD for good late last year but HR has my FL address till I changed it to my MD one last February. How do I go about this?

Robin D :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
When you file the MD return you will list yourself as part year resident with the date you moved.

Robin D :

When you live in Maryland and work in Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Virginia or West Virginia you should file your state income tax return with Maryland.

Robin D :

Up till the time you moved you were a nonresident but still taxed in DC for your income, after you moved to Maryland you were a part year resident. You will file a part year Maryland and a Nonresident of DC. Your returns will be based on the time of your move.

Robin D :

I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX HR dept has corrected your address now for 2013.
