File your state tax where you are a permanent resident, which for you is Wyoming.  However if you earned money at a job while you were at school in Nebraska then you must file a return for that state as a nonresident.

Temporary residency for school does not change your permanent resident status. Review the information below if you had wages while you were a student in Nebraska.

Prepare the nonresident state first and then your resident state.  First, use the steps here to add the nonresident state to your file.

  1. Select "My Info" in the black navigation panel on the left
  2. Edit by selecting the pencil next to your address or Edit
  3. For a second state only: Edit by selecting the pencil next to Other state income, select NE
  4. Click the image attached to enlarge and view for assistance.

Resident State:  All income worldwide is required to be reported on your resident state return.  Any money that is also taxed in a nonresident state is eligible for the "credit for taxes paid to another state" when you complete your resident state return.  Your resident state does not want you to pay tax twice on the same income.

Nonresident State: Any money earned in a nonresident state is required to be reported on that state tax return (with the exception of reciprocal agreements which does not apply).  The nonresident state will tax any income earned from that state.
