How do i know when i became a resident of texas

We moved to Texas but I work in Ohio. When did I become a resident of Texas? Was it the data I purchased my home?

How do i know when i became a resident of texas

Generally, you become a resident of a state when you relocate

  • your place of sleeping,
  • your mailing address,
  • your driver's license,
  • your voter's registration,
  • similar things like landline phone

to a location in that state. Thus, if you rented an apartment in Texas prior to buying the home and got a PO Box for mail in Texas, that could be a sign of residency.

However, each state has its own definition of residency (or none at all); thus, you could literally be a resident of two states at once, under their differing rules.

Please see this Ohio web page on the residency issue. It's for non-residents, but it gives you an idea of what Ohio is looking at to define residency.
