    Default Am I California Resident for Federal Tax Purposes

    Hello folks,

    A residency question for tax purposes: In 2011, I was living in California under F-2 visa till June, over June-Oct I was working in Washington state under OTP (Optional Practical Training) status, and since Oct 2011, I have been under H1-B visa working full time in California again. And apparently, I am not a permanent US citizen, that's why I am under visa. Now my question is:

    1) Am I considered a California resident for state tax purposes?
    2) Which state form should I use for filling taxes?

    Thanks a lot!
    - H

    You were a part year resident in both states and need to pay taxes to each state, based on the income earned there.
    Dear Santa. For Xmas this year I want a fat bank account and a slim body. Please don't mix them up again.
    Why do stores in the US have so many undocumented shoppers?

    As you were residing and earning wages in two states over the course of the tax year, start here and here.
