I accepted a role in New York City but my direct manager said I can work from home in Boston instead. My understanding is that I would be paying NY taxes, but not MA taxes. Can anyone here confirm?

They’re a really small firm and I worry that this sort of thing could be prohibitive for them despite my manager’s approval.
