Pennsylvania treatment of foreign income

 

Pennsylvania Allows You To Be Domiciled But Not Pay State Income Tax 

If you are domiciled in Pennsylvania, you will be considered a nonresident if you meet all 3 of the following conditions:

1. You did not maintain a permanent abode in Pennsylvania for yourself or your family.

2. You did not maintain a permanent abode outside Pennsylvania for the entire year.

3. You did not spend more than 30 days of the year in Pennsylvania. 

If the above 3 conditions are met, you are taxed only on your income from Pennsylvania sources.  

If you are a Foreign Service Officer who is resident in Pennsylvania, you will still need to file a resident tax return as Pennsylvania does not consider government quarters overseas to be "a permanent place of abode elsewhere." 

When you are ready to have your return prepared please send me an email to get the process started.
