I live in MD and earned $1,200 as a consultant for a company in VA in 2018. Why am I being told I need to file VA state forms?

If you actually did not perform the work in Virginia, you are correct that you don't need to file a Virginia tax return.

If your income was reported on a 1099-Misc, you would be considered self-employed and include the income on your resident state return.

However, if you were paid on a W-2 or did actually perform work in Virginia, you should file a Non-Resident Virginia return.

Prepare this return before your Resident Maryland return.
