  •  If he earns money in CA, he pays CA taxes (3+ / 0-)

    on that earned income. If he doesn't want to pay any CA taxes, he can't win any money. So I guess he won't be playing at Torry Pines, Pebble Beach or any other CA tournament.

    As a non-resident who earned money in CA, he would file a 540-NR on his CA earnings.

    I wonder if endorsements paid by CA companies could be considered CA income.

    •  Good point - I recall hearing how (2+ / 0-)

      professional athletes have 700 (or 7,000?) page tax returns because they have to parse everything for every single venue they play in . .. .  which could be as many 32 for the NBA or NHL (and somewhat fewer for MLB and the NFL).

      But to my knowledge, I've never heard of any of them decline to play a game in a high tax state for this reason.  But who knows, maybe that's why they do something egregious to get suspended w/o pay for a few days if a trip to CA is in the offing . .. .
