Your wages will be taxed fro both states

- in Iowa because your income is from Iowa sources, and

- in Wisconsin because you are a resident of this state

However - you will avoid double taxation of the same income if you claim a credit for taxes paid to other states on your Wisconsin resident tax return.

So far - you will only need to withhold Iowa taxes.

Let me know if you need any help with reporting.
