Military residency

My son is from Massachusetts and is active duty navy.  He went to school in Conneticut from February -September and then went to Hawaii where he is stationed.  What returns does he need to file and what should his place of residency be.

Military residency

Since he is active duty military, in the Personal Info section of the TurboTax program, he would enter his state of residence as his Home of Record or State of Legal Residence.  So he would select Massachusetts as his state of residence.  He would also indicate that he did Not live in any other states.  If the military pay was his only income then he would indicate that he did Not earn money in any other states.
