- Is it Possible to Remain a New York Domiciliary Without Paying New York Income Tax?September 9, 2021
One of the major lessons the U.S. workforce learned from the COVID-19 pandemic is that people can work from anywhere.

For New York residents, telecommuting from a different location often offers little change in their state tax obligations. New York’s sweeping tax laws apply to all income earned by residents regardless of their remote working status.
