    I work in NY, Live in NJ. I am not double taxed. My W-2 just shows NY in box # 15 and NYC RES in box # 20.
    I filled state return as a resident of NJ AFTER filling state return as non-resident of NY. Turbo Tax says, I get a refund of $2600 aprrox from NY and I have to Pay $2900 to NJ State. When I filled out NJ Return it asked me “Other Jurisdiction Information – New York ” doubled tax income and Tax paid to NY on double tax income. Should I enter zero for both as I am not double tax. But again, after i enter Zero for both, and hit continue, I get “Your credit for tax paid to New York is zero.” Shouldnt I get credit for taxes paid in NY?? Turbo Tax says, I get a refund of $2600 aprrox from NY and I have to Pay $2900 to NJ State. Does this make sense??

  2. I’m not a tax expert so I’m not sure about the answer. But I would ask your question at It’s only free until tomorrow, though, so hurry!
