As you have said you cannot see what I have written to you, I am switching to a different version so that maybe you can see my responses. What I have said to you is the following:
However, based on what you have told me altogether, your wife is most likely considered a California resident, unfortunately. She owns a home joint with you there, she goes there for visits, her child is in a CA college, she currently has a California driver's license
I think your wife would be considered a California resident, based on owning a home there, having a child in college there, and visiting there on the weekends. Working in Texas alone is not enough to get away from California residency, and California is one of the worst states about calling people residents. You would have an uphill battle proving your wife's residency in Texas.
You will file a married filing
joint return in California, because you filed a joint return for federal purposes. She will pay tax on the wages she earned in Texas in California.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please keep responding below. It's not real time like chat, but I'm going to be on all day so I will get back with you in a matter of minutes.
If you have the information you need, please rate as "excellent" so that I may receive credit
