|This worksheet is used to file the taxpayer's state tax return as a nonresident or part-year resident of Arkansas.
Who Must File
All part year residents and nonresidents as described below must file an Arkansas state income tax return regardless of filing status and/or gross income amount.
Part Year Resident
A person is a part year resident of the State of Arkansas if he of she established a domicile in Arkansas during the tax year or moved out of the state during the tax year. A domicile is the place the taxpayer intends to have as his or her permanent home and is the place the taxpayer intends to return in the case of temporary absence. A taxpayer only has one domicile and does not change domiciles until the new place he or she is living is the place the taxpayer intends to stay permanently.
A person is a nonresident of the State of Arkansas if he or she did not have a domicile in Arkansas at any point during the tax year. However, an Arkansas return must be filed if the taxpayer had any taxable income from an Arkansas source regardless of the amount.
See the Arkansas 2013 Individual Income Tax Forms and Instructions for more information and details.
