I am not sure who to contact to get an inquiry done to insure my employer is accurately doing my withholding and reporting

That is correct - as a resident of Oklahoma - ALL your worldwide income is subject to income tax for that state.That is regardless if that income is earned in Oklahoma or somewhere else...See here - page 4https://www.ok.gov/tax/documents/511Pkt-15.pdfAn Oklahoma resident individual is taxed on all income reported on the federal return, except income from real and tangible personal property located in another state, income from business activities in another state, or the gains/losses from the sales or exchange of real property in another state.Note: Residents are taxed on all income from non-business interest and dividends, salaries, commissions and other pay for personal services regardless of where earned. Wages earned outside of Oklahoma must be included in your Oklahoma return, and credit for taxes paid other states claimed on Oklahoma Form 511TX. (See Form 511, line 16)

The location of your employer is NOT relevant - but what relevant - is your residency.However - you must determine your residency and may not just say that you are living in your track.An Oklahoma resident is a person domiciled in this state for the entire tax year. “Domicile” is the place established as a person’s true, fixed, and permanent home. It is the place you intend to return to whenever you are away (as on vacation abroad, business assignment, educational leave or military assignment). A domicile, once established, remains until a new one is adopted.So if you home is in Oklahoma - you are a resident there - UNLESS you establish your residency in any other state.How to proof your residency?(1) provide your driver's license? (2) your ownership of dwelling of lease contact (3) utility bills (4) others?Can you clearly verify WHERE is your residency and how you may proof that?

Expert:  Lev replied 6 months ago.
as a resident of Texas - you would be ONLY taxes in Oklahoma on income from Oklahoma sources.
