Thinking about temporary relocating to Texas for the first six months of 2021. How do the state taxes work? Can I not pay NY state tax if I’m there for 6 months and 1 day?

If you are “temporarily relocating” then this does not work. Your domicile (your “permanent home” that you “intend to return to after being away”) would remain NY. With minor exceptions that don’t apply to what you describe, anyone who is domiciled in NY is a full-year resident. The 184-day rule comes up if you are domiciled elsewhere but maintain a permanent place of abode in NY. This is all on the DTF’s website.


I thought it was prorated for tax but you claim residency in the state you were in for the majority?


If your home office is in NY you still pay state taxes if you pay less state taxes in another state


Yes this is key. Unless HR will be formally assigning you to a different home office, you’ll pay New York taxes. - in a state like Texas there are no additional state taxes - A good number of other states let you deduct taxes you paid the other other state(NY) from what they determine you owe and then you pay them the difference (which is nothing because New York has higher rates at pretty much every bracket position!) - I hear there are a few states out there where you would actually owe the other state additional tax for working remotely there even though you’re already fully taxed on the income in New York 


So if I got remote job in Boston even though I live/work in Texas, would I have to pay MA state taxes?

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Lies My Project Manager/Partner Told Me: Go!


How much money is “enough” for you guys? I’ll go first - $2M/year from passive investments so that I can work on whatever I want or not work if I don’t want to.


Best "Consultant Speak" sentence you've hated yourself for saying /typing?


Most annoying consulting buzzword? I’ll go with “connect” or “bandwidth”


Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.


Can someone explain this sense of entitlement by the younger generation? When I hear the younger gen complaining that they aren't getting paid enough when they start at 70k which is more than some experienced hires.....I just don't understand.


What household income would you need to be comfortable buying an 800k house? Assuming no other debt. Know there are many other factors besides HHI, just taking the temperature here


Advice- I am new to consulting/Accenture from industry, I have been asked to charge 40/45 hrs a week but I get all my work done in less than 20 hrs. As a Christian I charged the exact hours worked which is 18hrs but my SM is not happy with that. What am I supposed to do? Any one ever have this issue of finishing tasks in less time?


Wow. This morning on a quarterly regional all hands an Accenture Managing Director (and leader) had the group stop for a full minute for thoughts and prayers for the president in the first lady in the wake of their coronavirus diagnosis. Not sharing my feelings... Just leaving this there.
