Interstate Unemployment Claim Tax Question

Post by jb9 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 9:32 pm


I recently moved from a HCOL state to a LCOL state. One of the factors that caused the move was a job loss (layoff). I am currently collecting unemployment in my new LCOL area (a different state) as my unemployment claim has been transitioned to what is called "Interstate" status.

If I am having state taxes withheld from HCOL after I have moved to LCOL, should I notify the HCOL state that I no longer want state taxes withheld since I have moved? Or does the state withholding get transferred to my new LCOL state?

What is the most prudent way to handle this situation?
