Individual Tax Adjustment for 2007

I moved from NJ to PA in September 2007. I still work in NJ. My company did not change my tax information accordingly at that time and waited till 2008. I was issued one W2 for NJ. The person in NY who had been filing my taxes for last few years gave me hard time last year due to lack of knowledge of NJ/PA tax system. My taxes were filed incorrectly and now the State of NJ is asking me to file an adjustment or pay more money. Now I am not sure about the Federal part of the Tax either. A rep from State tax department told me what I need to do over the phone but I am not much of a tax guy so I could not comprehend the verbal instructions based on the fields and columns. How can I fix this issue.

Individual Income Tax Adjustment

Well, it seems from what you have described that when you moved to PA you were working in NJ and hence the W-2 you received sourced the Wages to NJ. This is correct!

I am trying to understand how your tax return was filed incorrectly, as NJ taxes the entire income earned in NJ State for a part year NJ resident. This amount is reflected on the W-2 for NJ State.

Unless of course you did not file an NJ state tax return and included the entire income in PA State. In that case, it is relatively simple, you have your CPA file an amended PA tax return and file a NJ State tax return and pay the taxes applicable to NJ State on the NJ income earned through the W-2. As for the PA amended State tax return, you will get a refund as the income was earned in NJ.

On the Federal income tax return, there are no changes to be made as the Federal income tax return will be unchanged as you have reported all the earned income as reported on the W-2, and taken the appropriate deductions for the state income tax withheld on the W-2.

Hopefully, this should help you, and if there is something I have missed please let me know.

Good luck!
