I moved to VT but work in NY I have nothing that proves I live in VT everything is registered in NY. VT income was never taken out of checks.is it ok to keep it this way?

So I moved out of my parents in N.Y. to Vermont but I still work in N.Y. I changed my mailing address but I wasn't able to change anything else because I have no utilities in my name proving I live here. My license and registration are all in ny. But I never changed my address with my job either so Vermont income tax want ever taken out. So what should I do? Am I okay to keep it like this since I have no way to prove I live in Vermont except that I have a change of address for my mail

Vermont will consider you a resident for tax purposes as soon as you establish your domicile (your permanent residence) in Vermont.  Therefore, if you have literally moved to VT (as opposed to being there temporarily), you are a Vermont resident as of the date you began living in VT - even if you didn't yet have a utility bill or your Vermont D.L.  http://tax.vermont.gov/individuals/income-tax-returns/who-needs-to-file/resident

If you moved during 2017, you will have to file a 2017 part-year resident return in each of the two states.  This FAQ explains how to do that in TurboTax:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901227-how-do-i-file-a-part-year-state-return

The income you earn in NY is taxable by NY whether you are a resident or a non-resident.  Therefore it is OK for your employer to continue withholding NY income tax, even after you become a VT resident.

In the future, if you continue to live in VT and work in NY, you'll be filing a non-resident return in NY and a resident return in VT.  VT will credit you for taxes paid to NY, so you won't be double-taxed.

For state income tax purposes, all you need to file is the VT tax return itself.
