kentucky as long as you remain a resident of KY. maybe CA too if you spend any time in that state.

If you did have to pay a CA tax you would, more than likely, get a credit in KY so that you would not be paying state tax twice on the same income.

It should be based on where you were when you preformed services, so Kentucky. I assume since you used the word consultant that you were not issued a Form W-2 (that you are self employed)? IF you were issued a Form W-2, and the CA employer reported CA wages and withholding on it then you would want to file a CA tax return and things get stickier. You would either pay taxes to CA and claim a credit on your KY tax return. Or you would want to file a CA tax return to claim a refund of withholding and you would need to attach a statement clarifying that none of your wages were CA. Either way you are a resident of KY and need to file a return with them.

If you live in KY and do your work in KY, then it doesn't matter where the company you work for is located. It all depends on where you do the work. You will not have to file CA.

If you received a W-2 Form, check box 16. It will list the state(s) you must file State taxes in. If you were self employed and do not receive a W-2 you will need to file a state return for where ever the services were performed.
