    Regarding filing taxes in multiple states (MO and AR)
    Hello,

    I was a part year resident of MO and AR in that order 2020 (roughly around 6 months each). I'm currently residing in AR and was on 12-31-2020 too. I've already filed my federal taxes.

    My questions are :

    1) For which state should I file my state tax first or the order doesn't matter?
    2) Tax software seems to be wanting a split of my interest income, dividend income and stocks sold. Is it ok if I split the amount based on duration of stay?

    Please advise. Thanks!

    It does not matter the order in which they are filed.

    If mailed, send a copy of the other state return with each submission; it answers a lot a questions before they can be asked.

    Equally splitting the interest and dividends are okay, but let the stock sales dates dictate on which state to put the stock sales.
