    Do you as an interstate owner op pay income taxes to multiple states? If you lease on to someone, is your income then considered to be all from one state? If you have your own corporation in one state and lease on to a carrier in a different state, which state do you pay taxes to?

    I live in Ky and am leased to a carrier based in Ca. I pay state income tax to Ky only. My local city also has an occupational tax, but I only am required to pay a very small fraction as the majority of my work is done outside the city limits. I have heard of some local jurisdictions trying to get truckers delivering in their locals to pay some income tax there, but I have not encountered that.

    Thanks. Whose decision was it to pay KY tax rather than CA tax? Yours or a tax pro? My accountant is on vacation this week so I can't ask her.

    You pay state income tax in the state you reside and not where the company you work for is headquartered. Those people that live in a state like Tn or Fl have no state income tax.
