Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.
Residence for state taxes had some special considerations. For example:
If you were a MA resident in 2013, you likely have to file as a MA resident until you take the steps needed to establish residence elsewhere. Voting is just one step. Drivers license, mailing address, when you put your MA home up for sale, and more are factors the states will consider.
I suspect you have to file in MA as a resident and non resident for 2014. Report all your income, and claim credits for income tax paid to NJ and NC for any income earned in each state. The rental is MA source all year.
I think you are looking at three state returns, and a split of your MA year into resident and nonresident. Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
OK. Then you are likely a NJ resident and MA resident and nonresident, and NC resident for each respective short period. You might be clean for 2015, and only have to file in NC and in MA as a nonresident for the MA source retirement income.
