With tax time quickly approaching I was wondering what low down on USCG and taxes are? Specifically state taxes, in a different post regarding license and tags XshipRider said the following:
No state can make you change your license since as a military member you're a non-resident unless you choose otherwise. Changing residency in the military requires paperwork for taxation purposes. You vote and pay taxes to your home state for as long as you remain a resident.
So since my son lived in New Mexicoprior to enlisting, but now is temporarly stationed in California, and to my knowledge he didn't change residency where does he file? Does he pay NM taxes or CA taxes and even a little to NJ (Cape May) ? He will obviously have to pay federal but who which state gets the dollars.
