Cash hungry states are looking into employees who perform their work in different states as a source of revenue. Employers whose payroll systems are not set up to track, collect and pay the appropriate taxes for employees who travel to multiple jurisdictions may be liable for the tax.
State auditors are more inclined to audit the employer to uncover these revenue opportunities rather than auditing individual employees. It can get complicated. Some states with income taxes have thresholds for money earned and time spent by the employee working in their particular states. Other states tax the employee starting from the first day of travel in the state.
