Working in different states, DL & address questions

I have a Texas Drivers License. We no longer have a home anchored to the ground, so no "physical address". What address should my drivers license reflect?

We are considering going to Kentucky for a year. Would we need to get Kentucky drivers license to work there?

Anything else I don't know about or should be aware of?

Thanks!

James

It doesn't make any difference as long as you can meet the requirements of the state that issues it. Any states license is as valid as any other, regardless of where in the USA you go. Or Canada, for that matter.

Where things get sticky is if you work in a state, even part time, or enroll kids in school, or some similar thing. Many states have laws that stipulate you must register vehicles and obtain a DL in that state under those circumstances. But if you are moving on again in a few months, what to do? Most just ignore it, but if you stay too long in one place you will eventually run afoul of the license and tag thing.

You really need to research the residency laws of Kentucky. If you are in KY for a year I would think you would qualify as a resident of KY. Most states look upon you as a resident when you exceed the 183rd day in their state.

We have gone through a number of residency audits and they are not fun. States need and want money and if they THINK you are a resident then the burden of proof is on you as the taxpayer so make sure you know the laws of the state you will be in.

Here is a link to KY residency requirements.

103 KAR 17:010. Residence.


As wnytaxman stated it is important to adhere to each states laws or you will find yourself owing taxes and penalties.

Each state can be different so if you are working in a state you need to research residency for that state.

In general, if you are working in a state your employer will withhold taxes for that state. If you are going to reside in a state you will be expected to take up residency (DL, registration and insurance). If you have residency in your primary state and expect to return there within a year you should not have a serious problem with the DL/registration issues.

I was hoping it would not be complicated, but it appears to be. I would hate to transfer everything over from Texas to Kentucky for only a year. I may have no choice. I surely appreciate the input and the link. Thanks!!

You are going to pay KY taxes. I would hold off making residency changes until I knew where I was going to land for the long term.

Heck, buy a lot in Tennessee, make that your residence and "BAM!" You have a home address in a state without income taxes, low auto/trailer taxes and pretty low property taxes.

I live in Nv and worked in Ca. The only thing i did was dual register my pickup which covered me for both states. I didnt change my DL and was stopped while driving a company truck and never questioned why i had a Nv DL.
