Hello

Yes, if she worked in MI after arriving then she is taxed on her income from June till Dec.

Please remember to rate my service excellent once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!

She did not work, she is retired. But she did work in WA for 4 months before coming here. Does she need to file in WA?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago

No income tax in Washington State. Washington State does not have a personal or corporate income tax.

You mentioned she is retired. If she gets a pension then the amount she drew since coming to MI is taxable in MI.
