    Anyone have employees that live in another state? How do you go about taxes? Will it be more paper work or do they just pay NJ taxes like employees that live here? I have an applicant from NY.

    Generally, the income an employee earns is taxed to the state in which he is employed and works in. In your case, he will pay NJ tax.

    Check with the state or your accountant, some states have some reciprocal agreements with adjoining states.
