I filed extensions to my 2012 federal and state tax returns
and have subsequently filed the 2012 Federal Tax
Return but not the state returns, as I have a question.
We were relocated by our company from NJ to MA in 2012. We actually rented a home in MA from 15 June 2012, although the company only acknowledged the transfer from 1 November 2012. What is means is that we were paying NJ state income tax
until 1 November 2012 and MA state income tax from 1 November 2012. We working in MA from 15 June 2012.
If we say in the state tax returns that we moved up on 15 June then we would have a significant NJ state tax
refund (about $7,000) and a corresponding MA state income tax liability (about $7,000).
If we say in that our job officially started in 1 November 2012, the date when the company stated to pay MA tax, then we would have no NJ refund and no MA additional tax which would make complete sense to me. However, I wanted to be sure.
