Among the many unexpected results of the COVID-19 crisis is the possibility that you may inadvertently acquire a new state and/or local income tax resident status.This occurs because many states and cities (including New York State, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut) determine tax resident status, in part, based on the number of days a person is present in the state or city. My colleague, Richard Goldstein, explains how this may happen in one of our recent Clients Alerts.
