Oi vey!  It now appears that the reciprocal agreement between New Jersey and Pennsylvania will remain in place.  New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents working in the opposite state will continue to pay state income taxes only in the state where they live.
According to the Governor’s website -
Governor Chris Christie announced today he is now able to save the income tax reciprocity agreement with Pennsylvania, thanks to health benefit reforms enacted since the FY17 budget passed.”
I wonder how many employers had already wasted money to change their software or internal payroll procedures.
I trust that this “saving” of the reciprocal agreement by CC will not be reversed again – although I did not oppose, and actually supported, the end of the agreement.
