Moving in with my SO in DC proper. My family owns a home in Northern VA. Does anyone know if it’s possible to claim my parents home as my primary residence? Trying to avoid paying DC income taxes

Not legally.


Just do the right thing. Don’t try to get around the law


If you don’t change your mailing address, license, and car registration you’ll be fine. Once you do one of those things it will be hard to prove you are a VA resident


Its “possible” if you have “proof of residency”

You wouldn’t need to be left off the DC lease. Just set the address of a bank account or your cell phone bill to you parents house and that gives you proof of residency. Legally, not sure what the requirements are for how many nights you are supposed to spend there to claim it as your primary. That’s between you and the IRS.

I think that can work if you’re a short term renter

You need to "stay in VA for over half the year (183 days)".

Is your name on the deed? If it is then yes ..

I do this

On the lease or not, still tax evasion.

And given what SC1 posted, I sure hope they never have to get a Federal Clearance .

Not legally. Can you get away with it - maybe. Should you - no.

Been interviewing with D, EY and Accenture at M level. Keep feeling a bait and switch to SC. I'm M currently. The feedback has only been that I "haven't worked on large enough projects" and that 1 yr as an SC to M timeline would allow me to "learn their capabilities, approaches, etc".

Anyone else face this? I'm a bit frustrated. High performer, MBA... How much will this effect salary, if I accept an SC vs. M offer?

Been at my company since 2016 after graduating from graphic design. I might be a little underpaid but benefits are good. I guess this is a testament as to how a huge pay isn't always the only thing to look out for. I may be wrong but it's worked for me ever since.
