Lee, it depends, California apparently makes it tough not to pay.Lee said:I have been living in BA as a tourist for the past 2 years (I like long vacations) and it is tax time yet again. I always pay my federal taxes online so that is no problem. My question is about state income taxes.
I have not physically lived in ANY STATE for 2 years. Therefore, do I need to file a tax return for this tax year? Prior to coming to BA I was a resident of the state of California.
Bottom line...having not actually lived in California do I need to file a state return?
Thanks for the suggestions!
