Since you live in Oklahoma but work in Louisiana, yes, you may owe some income taxes to Oklahoma. You will need to complete an income tax return for Louisiana first. When completing your Oklahoma income tax return, you will get a credit for paying income taxes to another state (Louisiana).The only way to know how much you may have to pay, is to complete both state income tax returns.

This is the second year we have run into problems with TurboTax filings of the Oklahoma State taxes with income and taxes paid to Louisiana.  Last year they Oklahoma back and said instead of refund we had to pay an additional $400 and this year they are stating we owe an additional $800.  I suggest you not use TurboTax to file and get a local tax professional to complete you Oklahoma return.

Nothing wrong with consulting a tax pro, but remember:

To get the proper credit on your home state return, you must complete the non-resident state return first, before you do your home state return.

And your home state will not credit you for more than 100% of what their own tax would have been on the same income.
