Unfortunately yes. If you traveled to AL and worked in AL, then your income would be considered AL-sourced (even though you are a resident of TX). Therefore, you would need to file an AL nonresident state income tax return to report your AL wages only.

Yes - You will file an AL nonresident state income tax return and only report your AL sourced income. Your wife's TX income will not be taxed in AL even if you file the AL nonresident return jointly.
