Hi- Worked for same company in different states last year. Resident of NC for full year. Worked in NC, NJ, LA & FL. Total federal wages stated in box 1 are 44,808. NC wages in box 16 total 35,950. LA wages total 11,782. NJ wages total 19,714. Why would total state wages be so much greater than federal? Believe taxes would be paid to NC since none would be paid to FL but still unsure why the state wages are so much higher than federal.
