If I lived in PA and worked in NJ in 2018, shouldn't I get my tax returns for both states but only pay state income tax for PA? How do I do this?

PA and NJ have tax reciprocity with regard to W-2 earnings.  If your income from NJ consisted solely of W-2 earnings, you do not have to file an NJ tax return.  Those earnings are taxable only by your home state of PA.  If that's your situation, answer No in the My Info section to having income from other states.

Tax reciprocity applies only to W-2 earnings, not to any other type of income.
