I have received a 1098-T due to receiving a fellowship from my school.

Box 1 is all qualified expenses. This portion is not taxable by either CA or Federal.

Box 5 is the total of the fellowship amount, which includes the amount in Box 1.

My question is: do I pay CA tax on every dollar in (Box 5 - Box 1)?

Does this change depending on whether I'm considered a CA resident or non-resident (for tax purposes)?
