I am having some trouble determining my tax status for the state of Illinois. I was a J1 (short term scholar) in the state of Illinois for 3 months. From reading this piece of information for first time filers; I know that I am definitely not a resident. But I am not certain whether this means I am a part-year resident or resident. My stay in Illinois was of a temporary nature, i.e. it was never my intention to establish a permanent residence there; so assuming being domiciled means establishing a permanent residence and is the definition used by the state of Illinois as "resident"(see here) I would take that to mean that I'm a nonresident. Is this interpretation correct?
I'm sorry if this question seems trivial, english is my second language, so this definition chasing is a really hard activity for me.
