Ny/NJ MFJ or MFS???


Apala Man

What is the best way to go about this scenario?

We live in NY. I work in NJ. She works in NY. We filed federal jointly(MFJ)
and we we will get back 3500. We tried to file NY state and it says we owe
2700? do we have to NY state jointly, and do we have to file NJ jointly,
even though I am the only one that worked there. Thanks.




You have to file NY jointly, you do not have to file NJ jointly. You can
file NJ as MFS, and she can if she had NJ-source income.
