Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
Unfortunately, the states that you earn income in do have a right to request your federal income tax return. They use this to ascertain whether or not there is additional unclaimed income for their state.
Does that include all financial statements, w-2, 1099, ... everything?
They can ask for that information too
to ensure that none of your income came from a Montana source
Ok, I guess that covers it. Thanks.
I'm truly sorry if this is not the news you had hoped to hear
It seems unjust. But that's just the way the tax ball rolls I guess. Thanks for the expert reply.
