Do I need to file an income tax return?
Generally, you must file a New York State income tax return if you're a New York State resident and are required to file a federal return. You may also have to file a New York State return if you're a nonresident of New York and you have income from New York State sources.
You need to determine if you're a resident, nonresident, or part-year resident before you can decide if you need to file a return with New York State.
