An individual whose permanent home is in a different location from where they work.
Non-resident Extended Definition
In the context of U.S. payroll, non-residents usually refer to an employee who lives in a different state than the workplace location. This could be on a temporary basis for a contract assignment or a permanent basis, where the employee lives close to the state border.
Each state has rules for calculating and withholding state income tax for these non-resident employees.
