    Paying state taxes in multiple states

    For the first time, I had to pay state tax in CT and NC for 2008.
    After filing a form in CT, I got a letter that I still owe tax. On the form that I sent initially, I put the income from my federal tax form (W-2s from both states), and the income from just CT, which was so little that I should not pay any taxes in CT with that income. However, from the letter I got, they used my whole income as a base (from both states) and charged CT income tax based on my income in both states. Is that correct?
    Thank you for your help!

    I suspect that you did not properly allocate the income between the two states, nor did you provide a copy of the NC state income tax return to show CT that you paid taxes to NC.

    Do these two things and you shold be okay.
