How will I know what area you are in? The "networking" out/insourcing idea sounds good. Definately address "stealing my client" issues up front. Kevinh5

That should help.

David, I'm sorry I don't know the answers to your questions. I do work with nonprofits, but I have not come across the issue you are referring to.Natalie 16:44, 7 September 2007 (CDT)Natalie


You file only 1 return for NC, show the dates of residency, but the amount that should be taxed in NC would be the sum of (earnings while resident + work performed in NC while non-resident) the W-2 should be easy to divide out - it probably already is.

Since the taxpayer is NOT a full-year resident of NC, there will be no tax credit on the NC return for taxes pd to VA, you have it backwards. The client should receive a tax credit on his VA return for taxes owed on the PORTION of the W-2 earned in NC while a VA resident.

That is the theory.

The reality is that VA will only know about what you put on the tax return and what the W-2 says, so if there is no obvious overlap on the W-2 (Fed wages = 100,000, NC = 70,000, VA = 50,000 <this example has 20,000 'overlap') then I wouldn't really bother with trying to figure out the credit, just tax in VA the amount that the W-2 shows for VA.

hope this helps Kevinh5

Smog: Regarding whether the 25% owner of one part of an employer is a 5% owner for purposes of his 401k plan. I'm guessing the client probably is a 5% owner. But the question can get more subtle beyond the facts in your post, such as in considering whether the owner has voting rights. I'll assume that won't apply here & also assume the two companies are part of an affiliated service group.

The Regs I cited should be ok, even though portions of 1.414(q)-1T have been obsoleted. I think the changes have to do with family aggregation type considerations. Before 1997 or so, a husband and wife were considered as one person for some of the qualified retirement plan calculations.
