I am an affiliate of a company located in State A.

I reside (full year) and operate my affiliate site in State B.

I receive a 1099-MISC (non-employee compensation) from the affiliate company for commissions earned.

To what state would I pay income tax on my affiliate commissions - State A or State B?

I am in the UK. Over here regardless were you earn the income if you are domicile in the UK you have to pay the income as a total on UK tax law. I would of thought were you live is were the tax is due but i would just ring the local tax department.

For the U.S., you would pay state taxes where you are located (State B). Unless you have a physical location in State A (or in some cases, traveled there to conduct business), State A has no jurisdiction.

For legal advice, talk to a lawyer, for financial advice, an accountant.

Free advice is worth what you pay.

No offence to those who have given advice so far

A 1099 is a declaration of income/commission paid to you. You file that amount with your business or personal income tax, federal and state (if applicable). The company sending the 1099 is reporting to the government they PAID you that amount
