I'm a registered alaskan resident, but i work for a place in NJ. They are taking a numerous amount of taxes out that is NJ taxes and I was wondering if they are supposed to take out my registered state tax out? I was told by a man that if i'm registered in one state and work for another the state i am resident of are the taxes that are supposed to come out of my NJ paychecks. Each week it seems like more and more new taxes show up on my paper even if i make a dollar more and I tried asking my boss and he has no clue.

I believe there is a "military spouse residency relief act" that is either waiting to be passed or was recently passed. But I would call h&r block and ask or the IRS if they don't have an answer.

They are suppose to be taking out the New Jersey Taxes.  I found this on the New Jersey Dept of Treasury division of Taxations website:

A place of abode, whether in this State or elsewhere, is not considered to be permanent if it is maintained only during a temporary stay for the accomplishment of a particular purpose. Therefore, a nonmilitary spouse/civil union partner who is not domiciled in New Jersey, and who moves to this State on a temporary basis to accompany a military spouse/civil union partner who is stationed here, does not become a New Jersey resident unless he or she intends to remain here permanently. He or she will be considered a nonresident for New Jersey income tax purposes, and will be subject to tax only on income earned from New Jersey sources.

NJ  gets to take taxes. Sucks but thats how it is. I'm a Fl resident with no state income taxes but when DH was stationed in Hawaii and I worked there I had to pay their taxes.
