First, unfortunately there is no question that ones federal tax liability will follow him to another state. The IRS can easily find you by several means, so it is just a matter of time before those nasty letters will be arriving. If there is state income tax in the first state, it will not follow you to the new state since the first state’s authority extends only to its borders. There are some exceptions to that, but it is unlikely that the state taxing authority would file a suit in the new state to collect the tax. A competent tax professional can and will be very happy to help you with your federal tax problem, no matter where it arose. If I have a case like this, I can get the case transferred to the local division and deal through local revenue officers in Greenville or Columbia.
