Filing tax while living in temporary housing in different state

Hi,

I have my residency in Minnesota(my name is on a condo deed but not on the mortgage loan payment) right now but have been working in California since April 2022. This is not a temporary move, I plan to declare residency, register to vote and etc.

I work for a hotel and the hotel provided a room for me to stay while I look for a permanent residence. 

They were generous enough that I do not have a date when I need to move out. I plan on moving out sometime in October or November of this year. 

Given this situation, my questions are,

1. When I file my tax for the year 2022, how would I file my state return? Do I need to file one for Minnesota (Jan. through end of March) and file another one for California(April through Dec.)? 

2. After searching online, it looks like I am qualified to be considered as a California resident; I will be living in the state for more than 183days by the end of this year, I work for a California registered company, a car registered to the state of California, will have a residence by the end of the year. Am I correct? 

3. Only thing I am concerned after researching is that I have my name on a Deed in Minnesota (the condo co-owned by me, my sister and brother in law). What I read was that if I have a home in different state, i might be considered as a dual residency and end up owing state tax on both states. 

 

Thank you in advance for your replies.

Am I correct?  Filing as part year will work just fine.

@jinster86 do be mindful, that the employer may cause the value of you staying in the hotel to be taxable income to you (and part of your W-2) while the cost of the move is not tax-deductible through 2025.

Make sure your employer is withholding CA income taxes from your pay.  CA is going to consider you a resident for tax purposes since your move to CA in April 2022.
