Utah resident works in Idaho, state income taxes?

I live in Utah and work in Idaho. Married filing jointly. Wife worked in Utah and paid UT income taxes. My W2 shows no Idaho income tax withheld for me. I did not work in Utah. Do I pay Idaho income taxes for wages I earned in Idaho, not sure what I do with Utah income taxes, only my wifes portion? I did not work in UT. Its saying I owe taxes in Idaho and Utah during my tax calculations.

Utah resident works in Idaho, state income taxes?

I suggest you begin with fresh data imported from the federal return.

 

  1. First, please check My Info in the Federal return and be sure the box is checked for Made money in another state
  2. Then go to the States section and click on the delete trashcan icon for both Utah and Idaho
  3. Then, add Idaho first, and be sure it is a Non-Resident state and complete it
  4. It will show federal income for you and your spouse and ask you to allocate what is sourced in Idaho
  5. Next, add Utah and be sure it is a Resident State
  6. It will show federal income for you and your spouse and ask you to allocate what is sourced in Utah
     

This should prompt the allocation of income in both states. Both returns will ask what part of the federal income is sourced in that state, so you can divide the income.
Then, your Utah return should ask if you paid taxes in another state and should have the amount of tax for Idaho but you may also enter that there if it is not showing.
