I live in Massachusetts and my companys headquarters in also

This answer was rated:

I live in Massachusetts and my company's headquarters in also in Massachusetts. My company requires me to report to them any days I work in New York State and they report it to them. The % of days I work in NY are then attached to stock options and bonuses and I pay that to NY based on that. I get credited in Massachusetts. Is that legal?

NPVAdvisor :

Hi, yes that's correct.

When filing state taxes, MOST states have a credit for taxes paid to another state.

NPVAdvisor :

This is what keeps you from being taxed twice, on the same income, at the state level

Hi Geno.

... just checking back in HERE, as I never saw you come into the chat.


But when you do your taxes (or have them done) you'll see that the way this ends up is you get a credit from your home state, and end up only really being out of pocket for the taxes in the higher state.

Let me know if you have further questions at all.
