What do I select for residency if I have a permanent residence in one state but am working temporarily in another state?

I am working temporarily (9 months) in a different state than my permanent address, and did not establish residency in the new state. Should I select that I moved to a new state?

What do I select for residency if I have a permanent residence in one state but am working temporarily in another state?

No.

 

Your domicile (which determines residency) is dependent on a number of factors:

1. Where you have registered to vote,

2. Where you have a drivers license,

3. Where you tell people to mail things to you.

4. Where you own property,

5. Where you have a landline (as if anyone does that any more),

6. Where you plan to return to when you finish a temporary job elsewhere.

and a number of other factors...

 

Based on what you have said, you are not a resident of the state you were temporarily working in.

 

P.S. be sure to enter your permanent address in the Personal Info or My Info, because the IRS needs to know where you will pick up your mail in case they need to mail you anything.

What state is your residence and what state are you temporarily in.  The rules vary.
