Reporting taxes to federal government?
I moved to island last September and began working in November. Had my paycheck taxed weekly. Received my W2 and paid about $400. I'm not going to bother appealing for a refund from the stories I hear about that. Yet do I still have to claim my earnings with the Feds or was that settled from my weekly paychecks being taxed? Paycheck is only source on income/earnings
are you asking if you need to file?
if you made under a certain amount, you do not have to file. that is easy to look up online. if you have made more than that you do have to file. did you work in the states before you came here?
Yes and those were already filed separately and I received a refund already
I think that, since you did not live in the USVI for at least 183 days in 2011, then you were not a bona fide USVI resident in 2011, but you were a resident with VI source income, so some tax applies.

You can contact the IRB for form 1040-INFO and to ask more questions.
If you don't meet the residency requirement (and you don't), then you report all your income (including USVI income) on your Federal return. Include the USVI withholding as well.
