Why am I being taxed on income earned in another state just because I was in New Mexico for 185 days?

You are considered a New Mexico resident if you were present for 185 days or more. Section 7-2-2(S) NMSA 1978  You are therefore taxed on all your income like any other resident, but you may be able to take credit for taxes paid to another state. Refer to the instructions on the PIT-1.
