Non-resident Definition

Term Definition
An individual whose permanent home is in a different location than where they work.

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.
