What is the purpose of the credit for taxes paid to another state?

The purpose of the credit for taxes paid to another state is to avoid any double taxation of the same income, once taxed by West Virginia and once taxed by another state. If you paid income taxes to another state on income that's included in your West Virginia adjusted gross income, include the information for that state and amount of income. If you paid income taxes to another state on income that is NOT included in your West Virginia adjusted gross income, do NOT enter any of the information for that income.

SPECIAL NOTE: You may not need to have the other state's income tax withheld from your wages. Contact your employer or the other state's taxing authority for additional information.
