I live in RI, but the company i work for is based in MA. Primarily, I have done work in MA and had MA income taxes taken from my pay. However, this year I started working at a job site in RI (for the MA employer) and the time I spent on this job they deducted RI income tax instead of MA. My question is on my W2 - in box 16 for total state wages the amounts are the same as box 1 my federal income. Because I file a non resident return in MA does this all balance out? Is it correct for the total taxable wages to be the same?
