Subject: California Income Tax
I am moving from California to Las Vegas. I will be working from an apartment located in Las Vegas for a California business. Will my wages for work in Nevada be subject to California income tax?

It doesn't appear so. When you are not a resident of California, your earned income is sourced according to where you performed the services for which you received the income. (Income that you received from all sources while you were a California resident is taxable in California.) Your employer can help you by not reporting the income as California wages on your Form W-2. Get FTB Publications 1031 (Guidelines for Determining Resident Status) and 1100 (Taxation of Nonresidents and Individuals Who Change Residency) at the FTB web site, www.ftb.ca.gov, or call the Franchise Tax Board and ask for them to mail the publications.
