I have a question... thanks!
We lived in California until April, then moved to Kansas. I worked in both of those states, and this summer I also worked in Missouri (never lived there, we're only a few miles from the border). I had state tax taken from all three states, plus Kansas City took its own tax (and they took a lot). Do I have to file in all three states? I'm pretty sure I'll get everything back - I always have in the past anyway - so I want to file for that reason... but 3 state returns sounds like a major PITA.
Also, what's the deadline for employers to get my w-2 to me? I've applied for grad school and a couple colleges want my FAFSA by 2/12, but I can't really fill it out without the info from my tax return.
Also, I cashed in a couple of returement accounts to move out here - one from the California State Teachers Retirement system and one little 403-B. They took 10% off each one to cover taxes. Can I get it back - I know I don't pay 10% of my paychecks in federal taxes, or anywhere near that. And it that now taxable income for 2005?
Thank you! Thank you! Thanks you!
