State income tax return question
I retired in Thailand 10 years and decided to return to the states. I do my own taxes using Taxact software. Since I have only lived in Georgia 6 months. The rules I read tend to discuss locally earned income (work, rental) between two or more states.
I have two possible issues.
When I came to Georgia, I only got a 6 month lease on a furnished apartment since I wasn't sure if we wanted to stay here. In the mean time, I did get a GA driver's license because I needed it to buy a car. I don't own any real estate property or worked in Georgia. Am I a resident of Georgia now?
If I am a Georgian resident,
Is there an issue when in 2015 I was a resident of Thailand and now I am in Georgia?
My income only comes from investments and savings, so do I divide my 2015 income by either 365 days or 12 months and then multiple either the number of days or months I have lived in Georgia?
Is that they way it is done?
Thanks for any advice.
I look to the present moment because that's where I live my life.
