    Hi Erdman,

    If you worked there, then it is possible. Most states have a minimum income filing requirement. For example, WI says if you are a part-year resident and earned more than $2,000 of gross income from WI sources.

    However, that sounds like a very transient situation. Did you work and earn money from a Wisconsin source? I suggest you take a look at this "Individual Income Tax Filing Requirements" for more details.
