ALJ Says Billionaire Spent Only 183 Days in NYC, So Not Subject to NYC Tax

A New York state administrative law judge has ruled that billionaire former hedge fund manager Julian H. Robertson Jr. spent only 183 days in New York City in 2000,  As a result, the ALJ ruled that Robertson was not a New York City resident because he spent at least half of the year outside elsewhere and thus was not liable for $47.7 million in New York City income taxes and interest for that year.

so if he's a US citizen, shouldn't he be required to specify a state? Some state should get that tax money? Otherwise, if he doesn't want to pay taxes, let him give up his citizenship.

Dan: he paid income tax to NY state. This case is only about whether he's a NYC resident in addition to being a NYS resident.
