Whether I have a job or not, it's still the case that the NYC income tax applies only to residents of NYC. To the extent you have been advising your employer or your colleagues to the contrary, I'd urge you to retract that advice.

This is wrong. I literally work for the largest staffing company in the world and we handle payroll for over a million people in the US. We have been dealing with this since the start of CoVid. Vertigo either has vertigo or is just a complete idiot, and I am assuming it’s the 2nd one.

In addition to being rude and hostile, you've been pretty vague in your statements so far. Are you saying that persons who are not residents of New York City are nonetheless subject to New York City income tax? If so, when? Thanks.

Please go read my other replies on this thread. I don’t have time to keep repeating myself.

OK. Everyone reading this (including all of us who moved to Jersey City to avoid the NYC income tax) can judge whether to believe (1) your statement that "if your company doesn’t have an NJ office you will still be aligned with your NYC office and have to pay NYC taxes" or (2) the website of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, which states "Nonresidents of New York City are not liable for New York City personal income tax" (

By the way, give a thought to whether the attitude you've displayed in this interaction is the one you want people to have generally online. I've tried to be polite and haven't downvoted you at all and you've just been consistently insulting and unwilling to discuss. In your defense, I blame Reddit quite a bit, as this format and the up/down arrows make real discussions difficult.
