I do not live in New York City I live in central New York and work in central New York. My employer has taken out NYC city taxes. Is this a tax I, not being a resident of NYC or any of the 5 boroughs have to pay?

  • do you ever do any work in the city? Do you go there for a staff meeting or a training class? How long have they been withholding for city income tax? Nov 3, 2021 at 12:13
  • I never go into the city for anything. I live 7 hrs away from NYC.

    You may want to talk to a tax person. Perhaps you can file a tax return from the city and receive a full refund. You may also want to consult your HR department. What exactly do you mean by "central NY"? What county do you reside?

From the comments:

Does HR have your correct address?

Yes thy do have the correct one

When wondering why a state or federal tax is being withheld by your employer, always look at the W-4. Providing HR with your mailing address doesn't mean that they will be able to properly withhold. You will need to complete Federal and state W-4 forms.

from the Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate (IT-2104)

Are you a resident of New York City? ........... Yes No

Are you a resident of Yonkers? ..................... Yes No

How you answered those two questions may help determine if any City taxes are withheld.
