Hi. I would like to know how I owe DC state taxes even though I worked in Virginia in 2020

I lived in DC for all of 2020 but worked in VA from January 2020-August 2020 only

State tax filing

In general, you are required to file a tax return for your resident state and if you earned income in another state, you would file a nonresident state tax return.  However, DC and Virginia have a reciprocal agreement so if you live in one state but work in the other, you would only report and pay tax to your resident state.  

 

You should file and report the income in DC only.  If your employer withholds Virginia income tax, you can file Form 763-S to claim a refund.
