Battle in Supreme Court Over Whether a State Can Tax Remote Workers

A battle is brewing in the Supreme Court with states that are trying to tax workers who are working from home instead of traveling to their states for work.

From CNBC:

New Jersey, along with Connecticut, Hawaii and Iowa, submitted an amicus brief on Tuesday in a lawsuit that challenges the authority of states to tax nonresidents’ income while they’ve been working from home.

At the center of the controversy is a court case between New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The Bay State has been taxing New Hampshire residents who have been working remotely since the pandemic, spurring the Granite State to file suit against Massachusetts in October.

Even during a health pandemic and economic crisis there would be states that are trying to tax you at any turn. Instead of supporting workers that have been forced to their home offices with tax incentives they are upset they can’t rip them off any more than they already are with taxes.
