    You cannot file Florida state tax because there is no such tax in Florida!

    Form IT-203 (non-resident/Part-Year Resident return). You can get it off the New York state government website.

    If Florida does not have income tax, how come my employer deducted taxes from my pay check from 2010 through 2011?

    Those may have been for federal income taxes and FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes.

    No state tax requirement for Florida.

    You WILL have to file a part-year resident return (Form IT-203) for NY state.

    If you want my professional help, double-click on my title above and scroll down to my profile/signature. You will find my email address and websites there.

    My home is in Virginia. I am currently a student in Florida and have a job here. I understand Florida does not have a state tax. Do I still need to file with the state of Virginia?

    Unless you have transferred your residency to Florida, you DO have an obligation to file a Virginia state income tax return and PAY Virginia taxes on the income earned in Florida, because all states require you report all world-wide income.

    It depends mainly on how much, and married/single, msagol13. Get a short form and see. If you are below a certain amount, you won't have to.

    If Social Security is your ONLY source of income, then, NO, you do NOT have to file a federal tax return.

    Good advice; you probably ARE eliginle for free filing IF you have to file, which is unlikely.
