Out of State tax credit. The amount DC domiciliary taxpayers may claim as a credit for individual income tax paid to other state(s) if the income taxed by that state is derived from that state and that income is of a kind taxed by DC. The tax paid to a state is the total state tax liability shown on the state tax return. (It is not the state withholding shown on your Form W-2.) The credit is limited to the rate of tax charged in the District. If you are a statutory resident, the state in which you are domiciled gives you a credit for the taxes paid to DC.
