No, boot camp is not considered as living in another state.

For tax purposes, boot camp, basic training, or whenever you are on orders an are getting full pay, you are considered Active Duty.

You state of residence will be your SLR (home of record) state. Even if you are stationed in another state, you’re still considered a resident of your SLR state.
