Hi Indiana tax pros,

I need you help with schedule CT-40PNR Section 2 tax calculation.
Taxpayer is a college student and has w-2 from a part time job from the Purdue university. Tax County is Tippecanoe, county tax rate is 0.0128 from the schedule CT-40PNR.

I calculated the county tax as following:
line 1. Employment income 3772
line 4. Exemption: 247
line 5. IN AGI: 3525
line 6: county tax rate: 0.0128
line 7: County tax: 45
Line 8: 45

However, the IN tax return prepared by the tax software is ZERO county tax. I double checked that I keyed in the W-2 box 18-20 county tax withheld and county code/county name correctly. Why my calculation is different from the software calculation?

Thank you!

Did I

Was the taxpayer residing and/or working in that county on the first day of the year? It is my understanding that IN county tax only applies if you were in that county as of January 1 of the year in question. You may want to check your input for where to enter the county code for the taxpayer's residence and employment as of 1/1/2023.

No.
So the CT-40PNR does not apply to him. Right?

Thank you!

Where Did You Live?
Did you live in an Indiana county on Jan. 1, 2023? If “yes,” complete Section 1 for yourself, and skip Section 2. If your answer is “no,” skip Section 1 and go to Section 2: Line-By-Line instructions.

Where Did You Work?
Did you work in an Indiana county on Jan. 1, 2023? If “yes,” complete this section. If your answer is “no,” you will not owe any county tax. Do not complete this section on your behalf.


Looks like no county tax to me.
