    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. With a simple internet connection, many employees can do their jobs from virtually any location in the world – a vacation home, a medieval European city or even a tropical paradise. 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. In fact, New York’s wide tax net employs two separate tests – the statutory residency test and the domicile test – to determine if a taxpayer is a resident of the state and therefore subject to state tax on all their income.

    Puerto Rico Act 60: How You Can Lower Your Federal and State Tax Rates Under the Resident Tax Incentive CodeJuly 12, 2021

    The Tax Incentive Code, known as “Act 60”, provides tax exemptions to businesses and investors that relocate to, or are established in, Puerto Rico. The incentives are particularly attractive to U.S. citizens who move to Puerto Rico because they do not need a residency permit, their Puerto Rico income is exempt from U.S. federal and state income taxes and they get to keep benefits such as Medicare and Social Security. Furthermore, the Puerto Rico tax code mirrors the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, making the transition much easier for those who become bona fide residents of Puerto Rico.
