Which state can a part-year resident take the Credit for Income Taxes Paid to Another State in?

A part-year resident can take the Credit for Income Taxes Paid to Another State in the state they were a resident of while earning double-taxed income.

Example 1: You lived in DC for five months and then moved to Virginia for the rest of the year. You didn't earn any Virginia income before you moved from DC. In this case, you wouldn't claim a credit for taxes paid to Virginia on your DC return.

Example 2: You lived in DC for five months and then moved to Virginia for the rest of the year. You worked for three weeks in Virginia (while still living in DC) before you moved to Virginia. The wages you earned for those three weeks are taxed by both Virginia and DC. You could then claim a credit for taxes paid to Virginia on those three weeks of wages on your DC return.
