If an employee lives in New York, works independently on project for a Florida based company.

No state tax in Florida. Does employee have to pay New York State tax?

  • Can you clarify if you were physically in Florida when you did the work?

  • @JohnFx that's irrelevant. The question is whether he's domiciled in New York, which by "lives in New York" we can see that he is.

  • @littleadv Good point. I was thinking of the reverse situation where you lived in a state with no income tax and worked temporarily in a state that did.

Yes. New York taxes worldwide income of its residents (in fact most of the States/countries do).
