New jersey / New York

I am currently a resident of New Jersey. I worked 50% of the year in New
York and the other 50% in New Jersey. When filing the NJ return should I
only put the income I made while working in New Jersey? Can I claim a
credit in NJ for any income tax paid to NY. I am unsure how this works,
living in one state and working part of the year in another.

In NJ you will report all the income. You file a NY 203 as a nonresident,
and claim a credit on your NJ return for the NJ tax attributable to the NY
income (NJ's tax rate is lower than NY, so you likely will have extra tax to
pay to NY).

I am having the same problem.
The NJ return has a line called "Taxes paid to other jurisdictions" this
is the amount that you paid to NY.
How much do you pay to NJ and how much do you pay to NY no one gives me
the same answer.

I did see an allocation worksheet for NY it figures out how many days you
worked in NY and computes the tax that way.

The NY nonresident form is IT 203.
