Customer Question

quot;For Lane"Taxpayer lived in NY year-round, had a fellowship from Stanford, which deducted CA taxes from her paychecks, although she never worked or lived in CA. NY and CA both want to tax her income. Is CA entitled even though she never stepped foot in the state?

No, the way source income is defined is "where the services are performed."

...

NY has a credit for taxes paid to another state, on their resident return - But, although someone at Stanford didn't do a good job and let this withholding happen, the credit is really only for taxed PAID to another state. CAN has no jurisdiction to tax this.

...

She should file a non-resident return for California and get this refunded
