I hope this will make it a little clearer:
Born and grew up in CA for 18 years (so thus my current state residence)
Went to college in RI for 4 years, and now working full-time year-round in RI (never switched state residence to RI)
Thank you again!
Born and grew up in CA for 18 years (so thus my current state residence)===>Then I guess you are a full year resident of CA unless you permanenetly moved to RI as a new home state.
Went to college in RI for 4 years, and now working full-time year-round in RI (never switched state residence to RI)====>>>rules vary from state to state.I guess you need to contact CA BOE OR RI Dept of Rev. for more accurate info in detail. In general, you are a full year resident of RI and a NON resident of CA if you did not keep your residence in CA or if your permanent residence was outside CA during the years; time spent in CA in each year was fewer than 31 days. CA resident may also be someone who is not domiciled in CA, but maintains a residence in CA, and spends a total of more than 200 days in CA
during the taxable year.
