Filing state taxes is difficult enough, but if you moved during the tax year it becomes even more challenging. If, for some reason, you have to move more than once then you are in for some real headaches. First, you have to research the states you lived in to find out their tax filing requirements. A few states do not require state taxes, so if you are lucky enough to live there, you have less to worry about. Some states require tax only on interest and others require taxes on money earned during the time you lived in the state that tax year. It is always a good idea to get advice from a tax professional if you have any questions.
You can also check online for the state tax requirements in your particular state, although you might find conflicting information depending on the state and site you have reached. You can always contact the state tax bureau if you have specific questions to get the most accurate information. It is always best to find out ahead of time what the tax requirements are for your particular state or states that you moved to during the tax year you are filing. It will save you time and money to file your state taxes correctly for each state you move to during the tax year. You can also contact reliable tax professionals who can provide the advice you need to file your state taxes correctly if you moved multiple times during the tax year.
