Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and can help you out with this.

So, you will need to file tax returns for both states. Arizona is where you will pay the tax for the work done in Arizona. That same amount is also taxed in Arizona. To avoid double taxation, New Mexico allows you to get a tax credit for the tax that you paid in Arizona. That effectively stops double taxation.

Hope that helps. If you need anything else, just let me know. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!

In addition, you will file a non-resident tax return for Arizona and a resident tax return for New Mexico.
