State Tax Question.

Post by Kpo13 » Fri Nov 15, 2019 9:02 am

i have a question about paying state taxes and our HR cannot give me an answer. Our office is in Louisiana but our checks come from HQ based in Houston, TX , i also live in Texas but i work in international waters through Louisiana . HR tells there is nothing that can be done. I have found very little info on this subject. Could someone point me in the right direction? Anything would be helpful. Thank you.

Welcome!

Could you clarify what your question is?

Are they withholding for Louisiana taxes and you do not think they should?

Are they withholding because they have you listed as a LA resident? Or is it because they are treating you as working in LA when you are actually in federal or international waters?

Sorry for not clarifying . Well i'm not sure if they should or shouldn't withhold LA taxes. And yes, treating as working in LA when actually in federal waters. Just curious about it, my colleagues aren't interested enough to check into it whether its right or wrong.
