A: Your resident state will tax your nationwide/worldwide income. You can claim a tax credit for taxes paid to the other state (or country). You end up, in effect, paying the higher of the two rates. Be careful of the expiring statute of limitations on claiming the credits, or you will end up being taxed twice.
A: The statute reads "only upon an annual basis." A quick review does not reveal any NC cases or regulations interpreting the language further. I think you'd be going out on a limb applying an alternate interpretation to what a court would likely consider a 'plain meaning' interpretation of the statute (although 'out on a limb' positions sometimes prevail). If the 2nd sale disqualifies the 'annual basis,' then the 1st sale would be disqualified also.
