I am having to file state returns in several states because I travel for work. I am listed as having made $10 in state wages in Georgia. For some reason Turbo Tax is telling me I owe $124. How is that possible? Thanks.

Nonresidents, who work in Georgia or receive income from Georgia sources and are required to file a Federal income tax return, are required to file a Georgia income tax return. Some examples of Georgia source income are wages, Georgia lottery winnings, income from flow through entities (s-corporations, partnerships, LLC’s, trusts, and estates), rents, etc. If you are a legal resident of another state, you are not required to file a Georgia income tax return if your only activity for financial gain or profit in Georgia consists of performing services in Georgia for an employer as an employee when the compensation for services performed does not exceed the lesser of 5% of the income received in all places during the taxable year or $5,000.00.

If your total wages for the year was more than $200, you do not need to file a GA return if all you earned was $10.
