If I worked a remote job based in Virginia from New York, do I need to pay income tax in both states?
AI accountant’s answer:
When you work remotely from one state for an employer based in another state, you typically pay income tax in the state where you perform the work—in your case, New York. However, each state has different tax laws, which may impact your individual tax situation. In general, you'd file a resident tax return in New York, reporting all your income. Since you worked remotely and didn't physically work in Virginia, you wouldn't need to file a nonresident tax return in Virginia or pay Virginia state taxes on your remote work income. It's essential to review the specific tax laws of both New York and Virginia to ensure you're compliant with their regulations.
