How Pandemic Vacations Can Turn Into Tax Nightmares (Podcast)

May 15, 2020, 8:46 AM

Many people are now working and living away from their usual homes or offices, either by choice or otherwise, as they wait out the spread of the coronavirus.

In which jurisdiction do these people pay taxes?

On this episode of our podcast, Talking Tax, reporters Isabel Gottlieb and Siri Bulusu look at why this is a huge headache not just for taxpayers but also for their employers, who may have to start withholding in states they’ve never withheld in before. They also talk about the even more complicated issue of people who are working remotely from another country.

Listen to their conversation.
