    There is no requirement that one must have income to be a resident of any state.  You do, however, have to be a bonafide resident of that state.  

    One cannot be a resident of State A, but claim to be a resident of State B for illegal purposes (such as improperly voting, trying to get welfare, claiming property tax rebates for non-homestead property, or falsely claiming in-state college tuition).

    You can be poor and live in Oklahoma.

    Residency is not determined by your income. Don't you think that Oklahoma might have more than one person who has no income? Residency is determined by how long you have lived in a state. If you need proof of how long it's been to claim residency, you only need a utility bill or correspondence for the length of time you've been there. In Oklahoma you are considered a resident if you have lived there continuously for 12 months (or more) and you have a domicile there--where you intend to remain.

    If you are physically within the boarders of the state, and intend to remain in the state, you ARE a resident. Income is 100% legally IRRELEVANT.

    If you are asking about things like in state tuition for school, that normally requires being able to prove continuous residence for a certain amount of time.

    Yes, residency is about whether or not you LIVE there, not about your taxable income.

    It depends.  If you are moving to Oklahoma and hope to get in state tuition, yes, it matters.

    Yes.  Whether you have income is irrelevant.  Not filing taxes may make it harder to show that you are a resident.  However, you can file taxes even if you do not have income.
