Q. I live in N.J. and I work for a company based in New York City. My office closed because of the coronavirus and now I work at home. How does this impact the reporting of my 2020 taxes for N.J. and N.Y.? Is the income earned while working remotely from my home considered as earned only in New Jersey and is it taxed as such, or is my total pay considered New York income?
A. Yours is a great question and the implications could affect so many people during the shutdown.
Under Section 132.18(a) of the New York tax code, any employee who works in New York but lives out-of-state must pay New York State income tax on their New York earned income, said Matthew Rheingold, an attorney with Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick in Denville.
