I retired from AL and working in Florida. I live in AL.
It keeps kicking back AL taxes saying, "Total Alabama Wages, Form 40 Pg. 1, line 5, must equal the total amount of all State Wages. How do I fix this? It accepted Federal tax.
As an Alabama resident, you will have to report all income earned on your tax return even though some of your earnings was in Florida. Had you paid state income tax in Florida, you would be required to file a non-resident return for Florida, and then credit the Florida taxes to your Alabama return. That is the way it works. For your case, the Florida income is still taxable to you in Alabama.
