I separated from federal service last June, with 3+ years of service. In July, we moved from Texas (no state income tax) to Oregon. Finally, in September or October I was paid my cashed out annual leave. All of this was earned in Texas, and I separated while still a Texas resident (my separation paperwork even says so). But Oregon tax was withheld from the payout because I had updated my address (to make sure I received my W-2 and any other separation paperwork). And the W-2s reflect Oregon income on that check in Line 15.

Is this proper? If not, what can I do about this?

Assuming the taxes were withheld and actually transmitted to Oregon, you will likely have to deal with the Oregon tax authorities. You'll need to know if Oregon taxes income when it's earned or when it's paid. For some purposes, the paycheck date rules. This usually applies to tax dates, but I can see where it might apply to locations.

How much is it? (you don't have to answer)

If it's a big deal, talk with a reputable tax professional.
