Default A tax question

I moved here permanently in August. I have had absolutely no income here since then. Do I need to file a tax return for 2018 anyway as a Florida resident?
Thanks, Steve

Are you asking about a Florida tax return or a Federal tax return, or one from the state you were from? In anty case, I would just go to HR Block, as they can and are familiar with other states.

There is no Florida state tax.

If you are referring to your Federal tax return, you have to file a Federal return if you had income from Jan 1 to August. If that income was earned in another state that has an income tax, then you need to file a part year resident state tax return for that state. Florida has no income tax, so there is no state return to file in Florida.

I will be filing in NY, fed and state. I'm guessing since I had no Florida income as a resident I don't have to do anything here.

As mentioned Fl has no income tax so you are ok.
Since a pension, social security check and interest and dividends are all income it seemed strange that you had no income for the last part of the year.

If you moved from a state that has an income or personal property tax, be prepared to prove exactly when and how you became a Florida resident. When I moved from Virginia, they prorated my car tax from the date that I actually received a Florida title for my car, and required me to send them a copy of my Florida title.

At the risk of stating the obvious no state income tax means no return.

I haven't had any "income" as I think of it since I retired 2 years ago. I've been living off what I think of as "savings". However, those savings are in a IRA and whenever I take some out to buy little things like food, gasoline, etc., it is considered by the government to be income and I have to pay federal taxes on it. Thanks to living in Florida, at least I don't have to pay state taxes.

When I first moved here, I had 2 months worth of income in North Carolina so I had to pay state taxes for that. My taxes were complicated enough that year that I had an accountant do them. Now they are so dirt simple that I did them using the new streamlined 1040 form. And with no state income taxes, I didn't have to bother with a state form.
