    Can't blame him, .. at least he will have a good chance to make a deep run into the playoffs for a couple of years.

    The states require withholding from your income. The Cowboys are definitely filing with the states (as a privilege of doing business in that state) and have to oblige with their payroll requirements. I have no idea how the Cowboys return would work or what it would look like (in terms of income), but they would be deducting salary and travel expenses on their end. Change my earlier example to the following:

    You live in Texas and work for Deloitte in Dallas. Deloitte now sends you to NY for a week to work at a client's office and Deloitte pays your salary. Your salary based on that one week will now be NY sourced, and Deloitte and you will have to file a NY tax return.

    I'm by no means a state tax expert, but as mentioned earlier, I have worked on athletes' returns, and had to file numerous state returns. Look up jock tax if you want more info.

    I live in Texas BTW.

    The player does at least five days of work for the 24 hours in the other state. Why does he get taxed on the entire paycheck by the other team's state?

    Allen will be a cowboy by a surprisingly remarkable move as his wife pushes him to be Texas bound. We are severely underestimating her disgust for the constant rain of the pacific northwest, only to push her husband back to Big D.

    Our hopes of Allen signing hinges on if Allen's wife is too high maintenance or not. I like our chances.
