You'll have to file a part-year resident return in each of the two states (assuming each state has an income tax).  This FAQ explains how to do that in TurboTax:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901227-how-do-i-file-a-part-year-state-return

You'll receive a refund of the excess withholding from your "old" state, but you'll have to pay your taxes due to the new state.

My new place of residency is FL, so I'm having a hard time filing because their is not state income tax.

Then you only have to file a part-year resident return for your "old" state.

In addition would I file a non-resident return also, for that same state?

No.  The part-year resident return is all you need.  The income you received after you began living in Florida is not taxable by your old state.

But I was still being taxed for Indiana taxes, even though I was living in Florida. So I'm still confused :(

Indiana will refund any excess taxes withheld.  All you have to do is file that part-year resident Indiana return, using the instructions I gave you.

I moved states last year, but my company didn't change my home address, so I was paying the wrong state's taxes. How do I file for this?

Hello, 

 

I have an even more complicated situation. 

 

My spouse and I used to live in Ohio together. He did not have any income in Ohio (unemployed), while I worked. He got a job with a multinational firm and moved to Florida to work out of an office there for a client, while I remained in Ohio. He has lived in Florida full time since taking the job minus training in other states, etc. 

 

His company did not update his address and continued to charge Ohio taxes. We informed the company, and they updated the address to Florida eventually. Until then, however, he paid Ohio taxes. The W2 form showed Ohio and the amount of state taxes that had already been paid in box 15.

 

We are doing Married Filing Jointly federally, and Ohio requires that that its state return status be the same as the federal return status of married filing jointly.

 

I have tried the usual solutions:  1)I have included partial year resident data in TurboTax already for my spouse, and this has not changed the amount that is "counted" as an Ohio State taxable wage for our combine income.  2) There is an Ohio state tax section that allows double-taxed income to be "credited," but it was never double-taxed. Florida has no state income, and so there is no credit to be given. 3) I cannot get the company to do a wage reassignment and get them money back from Ohio and issue a W2C, and their company through ADP recommended getting a tax attorney (which would exceed the amount of money that was charged by Ohio). 

 

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

@ABC567 

My suggestion: 

On the Ohio return, enter zero OH income for your husband.

Print the return after it's finished.  

Attach a letter explaining the discrepancy between the return and the W-2 information.

Mail the return.  Do not e-file it.

Cross your fingers.

Thank you for your suggestion. How do I change the Ohio State Income earned in the state section of the refund when it has been placed via W2 in TurboTax? I appreciate your help.
