What is the Credit for Taxes Paid to Another State?

The Credit for Taxes Paid to Another State is to alleviate any double-taxation on the same income. Taxpayers may qualify for a credit when the same income that is taxed by the other state is also taxed by California. Other state income taxes which are paid to the other state do not necessarily have to be in the same year, as long as the taxes relate to the same income.

No credit is allowed if the other state allows California residents a credit for net income taxes paid to California.
