You mean the other person can't qualify for the lease on his/her own? Will you ever be living there?

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, the other person can not qualify on her own. I will be visiting CA ocassionally but spending less than 20% (non zero) of my time there.

Thanks for the link. I found the following explanation:

"How California taxes residents, nonresidents, and part-year residents

    California residents - Taxed on ALL income, including income from sources outside California.
    Nonresidents of California - Taxed only on income from California sources.
    Part-year residents of California - Taxed on all income received while a resident and only on income from California sources while a nonresident."


I think I would qualify as a nonresident or part time resident at best. It seems that in either case since I am not earning anything from a California source, I would not pay any extra tax because of this lease. Is that correct? Thanks!

From what you describe, you are a non resident and do not need to file a CA return at all.
