I've owned a home in New Jersey for 20 years. I work remotely, from wherever I am. Last year, my family and I traveled around the country for 7 months, and I worked throughout this time. Then we settled in New York, but still own the house in New Jersey. The companies that I worked for are not in either state.
So where do I file taxes? I didn't live anywhere for more than a couple of days for 7 months, and then I lived in a rental house in New York for 4 months. But since I own a house in New Jersey, can I file as if I lived there the whole year? Or do I have to file in New York for the months I was living there? And how do I handle the months when I was traveling? If I say I lived in New Jersey for those months, can I just say I lived there the whole year?
