The tax home is a rubber band-like circle that is made around your primary job site. It is your economic base of income. It is as large as what is the 'reasonable commute' for the area. Sometimes 45 miles, sometimes 100, depending on what the traffic is like (maybe within 90 min?). If that job site is near the border, it can cross state lines. EXAMPLE: Live in Newark, NJ, work in Stamford, CT, Tax Home = New York Metro Area. (It is all within the NYC commuting area.) Since most travelers do not work a job at home, they fall under a set of regulatins that allows them to keep their tax home in the last place they worked if they: 1) maintain a residence (rent/mortgage) and 2) do not abandon it (spend about 30 days a year there and keep all other ties). A tax home can only be moved with work. You must actually work in the new area to create it. For a travel RN, the goal is about 8-10K of income. The only exception to this would be getting married, or returning to the US after a prolonged stay.
A permanent residence is just a physical address that you give the government so they know where to contact you. A traveler should usually keep thier permanent residence within the circle of the tax home. However sometimes there are exeptions. EXAMPLE: Professional sports players often have their permanent residence in a different city from where they play. He may be a resident of CO, because the home and family is in Denver, but a tax home in Atlanta, because he plays for the Braves. He files annually as a CO resident and an GA non-resident- - - You can throw a dart at the map, register everything there, and it becomes your permanent residence.
