State tax: should I add W-2 from another state?

Hello there,

 

I moved from IN to AZ for a new job during 2020, so I have 2 W-2 forms. When filing the IN state tax, should I include a copy of the W-2 form from my AZ employer (and vice-versa)? The jobs did not overlap and I was not a resident from one state while working on the other. Thank you in advance!

Technically, you do need to attach all W-2's to each state, as that is what the instructions say. As a practical matter, however, as long as the W-2 you attach shows the state wages and taxes withheld for that state, you will probably be OK.

No. Your residency and wages are very clear cut. You need only enter the wages earned while a resident of that state. IN part year return with IN income and then AZ part year with AZ income. No overlap.

That is helpful, thank you! Also, I only need to attach a copy of the W2 (I am mailing the forms) in their respective states right? No need to send the IN W2 to AZ.
