    State taxes on LES

    Advertisements
    So I know last year we got a state refund. And I know that we have paid taxes to Ca this year but we cannot find anywhere how much. By looking at the LES and the W-2 it looks like we paid nothing but I know that is not the case. Last years looked the same and we got money back. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice?

    I don't know where you're currently stationed, but here you go:

    http://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/faq/ivr/217.html

    If you were a member of the military during the taxable year and your domicile is California, we consider you a resident of California. While stationed in California on permanent military orders, you are subject to tax on all income regardless of its source. While stationed outside of California on Permanent Change of Station (PCS) Orders, you are not subject to tax on your military wages.

    If you are or were a member of the military and your domicile is not California, we may require you to file a California return if you have California source income such as:

    Wages for services performed in California other than military pay.
    Income received from real or tangible personal or business property located in California.
    Income received by your non-military spouse while your spouse resided in California, or income that your spouse received from California sources.

    yours may be one of the W2's that had errors it should be listed on your W2 what you paid in state taxes. your DH might have to take his W2 into PSD and have it looked at.

    Have you checked all the LES's throughout 2006? If the LES's and the W-2 show that no state taxes were taken out then the military member didn't pay state taxes.
