I lived in another state for part of 2015. How do I go about filing taxes in multiple states?

It depends on the state. If you’re in another state for a temporary assignment, you can usually file as a nonresident. Temporary assignments are those that last less than a year.

If you’ll be moving to the other state, you’ll most likely need to file part-year resident returns and claim part year resident income for both states. If you continue to live in the second state in future years, you'll file as a full year resident.
