AFSA Tax Guide 2013 Correction: New York
The AFSA Tax Guide 2013 contains an error concerning the tax status of Foreign Service
officers assigned to USUN New York. The 2001 opinion from the New York tax authorities
cited in the AFSA Tax Guide was superseded in 2009. The Office of Tax Policy Analysis, Tax-
payer Guidance Division, issued Tax Memo TSB-M-09(2)I on Jan. 16, 2009, amending the
definition of permanent place of abode in the personal income tax regulations. The new
rules determine that Foreign Service members assigned to USUN have a permanent place
of abode in the state of New York, and are therefore subject to New York and New York City
our attention to this important change and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
