I'm a California resident and I'm moving out of state to the East Coast for a new job which is a 2-year contract. I'll most likely end up in California again after the said two years.
Do I have to make sure to get rid of California licence plates and driver's licence, or risk being double-taxed on my state income taxes? (I don't own any real estate property, in California or elsewhere; and I plan to file as a part-year resident for the year in which I relocate to the East Coast.)
Note that this question is not whether you can be in another state without getting a licence plate in said state, (which might be illegal in said other state according to other state's law); but is about whether you can have a California licence plate in another state without being a California resident, and being subject to California income tax when not living in California and not physically working there.
