wrong. If you live in Jersey but work in NY, you are liable for NYC city tax.
Hoboken is nice, but Jersey City is a dump. Both are more affordable than Manhattan.
You shoulda told HR you lived in the dirty Jerz bro.
That doesn't address source of income. A non-resident is liable for NY State (and city) income tax for all NY source income (being one's salary, if your job is in NY)there are exceptions
That just says you're liable for NY State tax for income sources in NY State. You're only liable for NY City Resident tax if you live in the city: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/servic ... come.shtml
Who must pay this Tax?
Every income-earning individual, estate and trust residing in New York City must pay personal income tax. Part-year residents figure their tax based on income and deductions on the days lived in NYC.
Most people living outside the City are not subject to NYC personal income tax. However, non-city residents who are Employees of New York City must file Form 1127 and pay taxes each year. The amount is equal to the personal income tax they would owe if they were City residents.
