I moved from MD to DE in the last half of the year but I still worked in MD - My employer took ONLY MD tax out of my wages, how do I file my state taxes - Is there a way to transfer the taxes paid to MD, to DE?
Sorry, no they are 2 different states and do not move monies between them. You have to always pay taxes to the state you live in and to the state you work in unless there is a reciprocal tax agreement (there is not one between MD and DE) which then you only pay taxes to your resident state.
You must first complete the federal return and please indicate you lived in more than one state during the personal interview section.
Do note all states begin with federal income, do not let that concern you as you will allocate during the interview process.
Maryland requires you to file as a part year resident. During the interview you will indicate the period of time you lived there. You may allocate other income out for the period of time you lived in DE. All income though is sourced to MD.
You should file a change of address with the MD dept of revenue. http://forms.marylandtaxes.gov/current_forms/109-I.pdf
You will complete the DE return last. TT will walk you through allocations. If you are a resident of Delaware who works in Maryland, you may take credit on line 10 of the Delaware return (form 200-01) for taxes imposed by other states. You must attach a signed copy of your Maryland return in order to take this credit. You will not be liable for Maryland County Taxes as a Delaware resident.
I am not a TT employee.
I hope this was helpful?
