Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
If you resided in AZ and had any taxable income at that time, regardless where the income was generated, than you will have to file AZ part year resident return and allocate the income between OK and AZ. You do not need w2 with AZ withholding to do so. If for instance you received income from OK in November 2011, the income is treated as AZ income.
Here are the filing requirements for AZ: https://www.azdor.gov/about/faqs/individual.aspx

If you received all your income before you moved to AZ, you will not need to file AZ tax return. However, if you used your AZ address on your federal return, AZ knows that you had taxable income for that year because IRS and states share tax filing information. If that's the case you can respond to the notice from AZ that you were not required to file because all income reported on your federal return was earned while resident of OK.
Hold on. You said you moved to AZ in October 2011 but you still worked in OK until 2012?
But he was resident of AZ from October 1, 2011. Income he received after October 1, 2011 is considered AZ income, regardless where it was earned. OK doesn't have any reciprocity agreement with any state, which means if he worked in OK he will have to claim the income in both states, the resident state and working state. Let me check if there's any credit he can claim for taxes paid to OK.
There's a credit you can claim on your AZ return for the taxes paid to OK. You will have to allocate the income between OK (from January to September) and AZ (from October to December). You will use Arizona form 309 to claim the credit.
Here's your 309 for 2011: https://www.azdor.gov/Portals/0/ADOR-forms/TY2011/10100/10136_f.pdf
I don't get paid until you accept my answer so technically so far you haven't been charged anything. I do not have a control over the billing, I am just a user like you, so I really don't know what did you signed up for.
