No, it's not just the enterainment industry who've maintained Nev. residence. When living there, I was acquainted with an off-shore platform Oil Driller, who kept Vegas as his per. residence. As for Lewis and Foxx, neither were exactly favorites of locals, but that's another story. With no state taxes in Nev. it's been famous for high earners in any business to keep perm. residence there.

Only need to live several months out of the year to claim residency. Might be different now but, used to be 6 months.

It's not just the states, but some cities will require them to pay some sort of tax too. This is an offshoot of the commuter tax that a lot of cities in the northeast have implemented. Don't know if it happens in any other areas of the country, but cities started taxing the income of people who work in the city, but don't live there. A couple of years ago, some smart bureaucrat in Philly figured out that professional athletes should be counted as non-residents as well. PA's income tax is 3.07%, and Philly's non-resident tax is around 3.5%. Washington DC wanted to charge one, but they are prohibited from doing so.

i believe you have to live in the state you pay taxes for, for 9 months out of the year. so a kings player could claim a different state (arizona) but they would have to live there at least 9 months of the year. might not be possible to do logistically

Redd Foxx also decided he didn't have to pay income tax, the IRS and courts decided otherwise as well, him living here in Vegas had more to do with the Hacienda giving him a show to pay his debts than actually wanting to live here.

Thanks for the detailed reply. Definitely shined a lot of light on the matter for me. I appreciate it!

That was one of the parts I don't get. I thought that state isn't paying them though but the AEG company which resides in LA I believe. So I didn't get why that would effect them in other states if their employer who pays them is in California.
