    When I spoke to the NY Dept. of Taxation about this, they specifically said that it was up to the filer of the return to allocate any applicable wages shown on the W-2 to NY. NY does requires that, if the employee does at least some work in NY, that NY wages on the W-2 match the federal wages.
    Read up on Form IT-203 and the accompanying instructions; the form provides for a place to list your federal amounts then your New York State amounts. You should have none of the latter.

    Of course, I wouldn't want to be the employer trying to explain to NY why they were issuing a W-2 with NY wages when you did not live or work there at all during the year. Or to NJ when they try to explain why they are no longer reporting NJ wages and withholding NJ taxes.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
