California Tax



I need help to understand taxes in California. My company HQ is located in Minnesota and that is the address on my W2. I stay in Washington State but work for the company's business unit which is located in California. Am I required to pay California State Income Tax as a non-resident, since the business unit is located in California, or does the HQ in Minnesota take over as the company location?


Please Help.

If you are a waged employee and do not step foot in CA then you have no reason to file a CA return.

You didn't ask, but as long as you never physically work in MN, you have no tax obligation to MN either,
