Live in MA and earned dividend and W-2 in NH

Hi,

I asked this same question last year in TurboTax Community and need to double check again since there may be some tax law changes.

 

I live in Massachusetts and have a large dividend income (1099-DIV) and W-2 from New Hampshire.  Do I still need to file 2nd state return which is NH besides MA?  On the Federal tax return, do I select NO for the question on 'do you work or make money in another state"? 

 

I called NH revenue department last year and they said since I am not an NH resident I don't need to file nor pay for NH tax.

 

Please confirm this is accurate and correct.

Thanks!

For that w-2 , did you work on NH?

You must file in any state you either work in or reside in... where the employer is is immaterial

NH does not have an income tax requirement , so just file MA but all your income from the two states should be listed

Yes all W-2s and 1099 DIV from both states are reported in the income section.  So I should answer 'no' to the question on "did you make money in another state"?

Suggest answering “yes” (because that is the truth) but I suspect when TT figures out the other state is NH, it will say “never mind” and default to MA only
