Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
I do not live in LA the post office box belongs to my sister. I do not have a permanent address in CA which is why I use the post office box to receive my mail. Should the company have added the taxes withheld for LA on the original W2 to the corrected one in the box for state income?
my state of residence is LA but I do not own anything there. I work in CA and I am traveling around CA to find a place I can settle down and call home. From the original W2 can I add the state income amounts up to file the income tax since they did not do this on the corrected W2 to file or should I have the company reprint the W2 with the amount on line 17?
I did not live at any time in LA all year nor do I have any income coming from there. I will recontact my company and ask for the correction again. Thank you for your help.
I just found out the company I worked for took out over $5000 and paid to LA and I did not work or live there all year. Is there a way I can get that money back. I filed a LA state return because of this mistake and only will get back $59 dollars of this money.
The company did this by mistake but failed to correct it and notify me of there mistake. I did have to file as a nonresident or partial resident according to the selection but again this is not correct because no money should have been paid to LA in the first place.
