Might not be the right place for this but tax question. I was in CA for a week in 2016, CA is taxing my 2017 bonus under a "look back period". Is this legit? Called payroll and they think so.

You worked on a project in CA for a week, or lived in CA gor a week?

Worked for a week.

Absolutely you do not owe CA a penny of tax, you should be in state for 180 days or have a domicile there

Your firm will very likely make you whole at the end of the year as if you lived in your home state the entire time. Each year Deloitte sends me a W-2 for each state I worked in (generally 5-6) and the amount of tax they paid in each. I have to fill out tax forms for each, but am reimbursed. You will not ended up paying more (or less). If you have any questions I’d follow up with your HR and employee tax group.

Want to clarify, I was in CA in 2016. I never stepped foot in or charged time in CA in 2017 but they're taxing my 2017 bonus. It's an extremely small amount of tax but doesn't make sense how they could do that.

They arent taxing it they are witholding it. Its payroll not California.
