What state do I file my taxes with?

I've recently moved from California to Illinois but am still working for the same California-based company out of my home. I am unsure where I will file my state taxes when tax time rolls around. Any advice appreciated.

You'll have to file in both states. Each State Tax return will ask you the amount of time living in the state. Income will be split there. Sorry if this is a duplicate answer.

In all likelihood, you will need to file both California and Illinois income tax returns. Typically, you apportion the income to the state it was earned or assumed to be earned in. You will file part year returns for both.

Taxes are paid in the state the money is earned. Most states give you a credit for taxes paid to another state. If you moved to IL anytime during last year you would file IL for the months you lived there and CA for the months you lived in CA.

Your employer has a thing called Nexus. If they have are withholding CA state taxes from your paycheck - that is where you file. from wiki.... Nexus", in sales and use tax, a minimum level of presence, either direct or representational, within a state or taxing jurisdiction for a business entity to be required to collect, pay and remit certain state and local taxes.
