Part Year Resident CA part year resident NV

If an employer put all income listed as CA on a w2 how do you differentiate the income that was nonresident income to NV. Once a NV resident no work was performed in CA for six months. All work was in NV location once a NV resident. How do I back out the income sourced in NV from the W2 due to my residency in NV.

Did you ask the employer to correct the W-2 to correctly specify the income earned in each state ?

"How do I back out the income sourced in NV from the W2 due to my residency in NV. "

 

Enter your W-2 as is.  Then, on your part-year resident CA return, allocate to CA only the income you earned as a CA resident.  This will result in a refund of any excess CA withholding.

Tom is correct ... you can do the allocation yourself  however expect an audit letter from the state wanting you to explain and proove your position.
