Does H&R Block Online Support Nonresident or Part-Year Resident State Taxes?
For many, tax prep consists of filing a federal return and a single state return. However, in certain cases, moving or working across state lines means additional tax considerations — specifically, preparing nonresident and part-year taxes.
Fortunately, when you file taxes online with H&R Block, our products support both nonresident and part-year resident taxes for several states. You can view the list of states in the section below.
If you need to review what these terms mean and how these situations might impact your taxes, these summaries should help:
- Nonresident state taxes – Applies if you’re an employee who works in one state but lives in another. You might benefit from a reciprocity agreement between the two states. Additionally, your place of employment will withhold state and local taxes for the work state. However, you will still owe taxes in your home state. If an agreement exists between the two states, you will only need to pay to the home state.
- Part-year tax residents – Applies if you were a resident of one state for part of the tax year and moved to another state with the intention of making it your home. In general, you’ll need to file taxes for both states.
