Massachusetts 2015 Tax Updates
There are a few big changes this year for your Massachusetts tax return. The tax rate for most types of income was lowered to 5.2% from 5.25%. Also, there are new instructions relating to the federal Affordable Care Act requirements and how they differ from the Massachusetts Minimum Creditable Coverage (MCC). MCC is not the same as federal Minimum Essential Coverage, so make sure that your health coverage meets both Massachusetts and federal requirements. If you receive a federal health care penalty, you can now deduct that from any Massachusetts health care penalty you have to help lower your Massachusetts penalty.
In addition, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue introduced a new tax credit called the Community Investment Tax Credit. If you made qualified investments over $1,000 to a community development organization or fund, you can receive a credit for 50% of your investment. The Department of Revenue also increased the amount allowed for the Circuit Breaker Tax Credit to $1,050.
