State Withholding Taxes

I live in LA and work for a company in NY. I received the below message from my employer--is there anything I need to do or know? 


"The guidance indicates that if an employee has never physically worked in the NY office, it is not necessary to withhold NY taxes.  Therefore, we will begin withholding taxes based on the state where you are performing services, which is your resident state."

State Withholding Taxes

Hello alexandrak,

This message from your employer is just informing you that if you are not physically working in NY, you don't have any obligation to pay tax to NY state.  You only need to be paying taxes to your resident state.  

Hope this clarification helps.
