ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -New York tax officials say Derek Jeter should have been taxed as a state resident from 2001-03, which potentially could cost the Yankees captain millions of dollars.
Jeter says he is a Florida resident, but the State Division of Taxation of Finance argues that he had a New York residence during that period.
Jeter was given notice in February, then filed a petition for redetermination. In a five-page order from Administrative Law Judge Timothy J. Alston that was dated Nov. 7, the division was told to furnish Jeter with a more detailed bill specifying his ``community involvement in jurisdictions other than Florida'' and ``public statements regarding his desire to be in New York.''
Alston also asked the agency to give specifics of its ``vague claim'' that Jeter became ``immersed in the New York community.'' He accepted the department's assertion that Jeter had ``items near and dear'' in his New York apartment.
Florida does not have a state income tax, while New York state and city do have income taxes.
``As a Yankee, Derek has great affection for the people of New York and its amazing fans, but since the mid-1990s, he has made his home in Tampa, Florida,'' Jeter's agent, Casey Close, said in a statement.
The case was first reported by FoxNews.com.
Jeter's contract with the Yankees called for him to receive salaries of $11 million in 2001, $13 million in 2002 and $14 million in 2003. In addition, he has a $16 million signing bonus payable between February 2001 and June 2008.
Jeter purchased an apartment at Trump World Tower in October 2001, according to New York City real estate records.
