Multiple State Taxes

Lived in CT entire 2014 year, worked for TV production company in CA. First shows filmed in NY and NJ, where those state taxes were deducted, all remaining shows they took out CT taxes only - shows filmed in FL, IL, WI, and PA. No CA taxes taken at all. Do I need their payroll to cut corrected W2's.

Have 1 W2 for work in NJ that wages were reported to both states, but only with-held NJ taxes.

Have 1 W2 for work in NY, PA, IL, WI, and CA with CT and NY taxes with-held; mostly CT taxes and both states have the total wages reported.

If I enter W2 info into state tax returns as they are listed on the W2's, I owe NY taxes that I should not have. I also have no taxes for states I worked in. This is my first year working on a traveling TV show, and I cannot find any tax guidelines for that type of business.

Lived in CT entire 2014 year, worked for TV production company in CA.-------->I assume that you are a full year resident of CT,in this case, as a non resident of CA , since there is no reciprocal Agreements between CA and CT, you must pay tax to CA BOE on your CA source income and claim CA tax paid to CA BOE on your CT return as a full year resident of CT.

First shows filmed in NY and NJ, where those state taxes were deducted, all remaining shows they took out CT taxes only - shows filmed in FL, IL, WI, and PA. No CA taxes taken at all. Do I need their payroll to cut corrected W2's.=======>>>you need to pay taxes to those states on those states source income as a non resident of those states and claim those taxes paid to those states on your home state return.

Have 1 W2 for work in NJ that wages were reported to both states, but only with-held NJ taxes.=>> I guess in this case, as a non resident of NJ and NYS, you need to pay tax to NJ only on your NJ source income and need to pay tax to NYS only on your NYS source income; however, if you are a full year resident of CT, then you may claim those taxes paid to those states on your CT return.

Have 1 W2 for work in NY, PA, IL, WI, and CA with CT and NY taxes with-held; mostly CT taxes and both states have the total wages reported.=same as above; you ned to pay taxes to those states only on those sates source income and deduct the taxes on your CT return.

If I enter W2 info into state tax returns as they are listed on the W2's, I owe NY taxes that I should not have. I also have no taxes for states I worked in. ========>>except some states where there is no income tax imposed, you, as a non resident of those states need to pay taxes to those states and as said can claim those taxes paid to those states on your home state return.

Unhappy multi-state taxes

Thanks so much for your response. Since all paychecks were cut from their payroll department in CA, and they did not issue any W2's with source income from each of the states I worked in, I assume from your response, I need them to generate all new W2's to show source income for every state I worked in.
Seems like a lot of work for a entry level position that gross $16,000 with non-reimburse expenses of $6000. Not a good business to be in.

agreed;You should receive a W2 for each job/employer you worked and were paid wages for during 2014 REGARDLESS of the amount of wages you received. Each employer is REQUIRED by law to mail your W2 by the end of January 2015 for all wages paid in 2014 however, it is the tax law; as you have / changed many employers in many states , you receive multiple W-2s.as said, some of thestates with income taxes 'd impose taaxes on your paychecks on their source income while some states that have no income taxes'd not;however, you need to claim all the taxes withheld from your paychecks on your home state return,CA state, to cut your state tax liability.
