I moved to Pennsylvania, from Maine, last June 1st. I ceased all residency and employment in Maine on the 31st of May.
In doing my taxes this year (using HR Block Online), I noticed that while I only earned $4500 in Maine from Jan 1, 2013 - May 31, 2013, my Maine taxable income was $8250.
I started a new job in PA in the middle of August and just cleared $18000 for my yearly income for all my jobs, both in Maine and PA.
I don't really understand why my 'Maine Taxable Income' could be almost double what I actually earned from being employed by a company within the state. And it is the same my Federal Taxable Income (which i do understand is based on my AGI minus any deduction and exemptions).
But why would the calculation for my Maine T.I. include almost $14000 of income that i earned out-of-state, and after ceasing residency?
I did work for the same company in Maine (Jan 1 - May 31) and PA (Jun 1 - Aug 11) before starting my new job in PA (Aug 12), but i only earned an additional $2200 from that same company after moving to PA.
So even that couldn't account for the increased T.I. Does anyone have any insight into this type of situation?
