Q: Do I owe state tax to NY state on the unemployment money I recieve from that state
A: In brief, the answer is yes. SEE BELOW:
Unemployment compensation that is part of your federal adjusted gross income and derived or resulting from employment in New York State is taxable to a nonresident.
If the unemployment compensation received from New York State sources is based on wage or salary income earned partly in and partly out of New York State, figure the amount allocable to New York State in the same manner as the wage and salary income on which it is based.
