Hello I work in Oklahoma but live in Texas currently. I see on my pay stubs that I am paying state tax each pay period eventhough Texas has no state income tax. Is there a way to avoid paying state income taxes or is it only based on the state I work in?

Thanks in advance.

Income is generally sourced to where you earn it. You will file an Oklahoma nonresident state income tax return.

Can you work from home by telecommuting? That might be a way to do it.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I actually tried to post in the Tax Issues thread but I guess I messed up.

Telecommuting is not an option since my job requires me to be at the location for the most part.

Thanks again.
