I am married but my wife will be commuting to another state
to work. I am trying to figure out if she should become a resident of the other state or stay a resident of our home state. The out-of-state work arrangement is temporary , a necessary-evil to build experience in her profession - we expect the out-of state work arrangement to be two years.
We currently live in Denver, CO.
My wife's job is in Omaha, NB
I make $200K/yr, My wife will make $80K/yr
We plan on renting an apartment and buying a used vehicle for my wife's use in Omaha.
Can we claim airfare, apartment, and auto mileage as part of job expense?
Should she become a NB resident to avoid any CO income tax
(don't know how that works)?
