Questions & Answers

Who is a full-year resident of Indiana?

You are a full-year Indiana resident if you maintain your legal residence in Indiana from Jan. 1 - Dec. 31 of the tax year. You do not have to be physically present in Indiana the entire year to be considered a full-year resident. Residents, including military personnel, who leave Indiana for a temporary stay, are considered residents during their absence.

Retired persons spending the winter months in another state may still be full-year residents if:

  • They maintain their legal residence in Indiana and intend to return to Indiana during part of the taxable year,
  • They retain their Indiana driver's license,
  • They retain their Indiana voting rights, and/or
  • They claim a homestead deduction on their Indiana home for property tax purposes.
