2014 Massachusetts Income Tax Table
2013 - 2014

Massachusetts has two marginal tax brackets, ranging from 5.25% (the lowest Massachusetts tax bracket) to 5.25% (the highest Massachusetts tax bracket). Each marginal rate only applies to earnings within the applicable marginal tax bracket, which are the same in Massachusetts for single filers and couples filing jointly. The Federal Income Tax, by contrast, has different tax brackets for married, single, and Head of Household taxpayers.

Our Massachusetts tax brackets are currently from tax year 2012. Many states adjust their tax brackets yearly, and we will update the Massachusetts tax brackets for 2013 as soon as they become available.

What is my Massachusetts tax bracket?

Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the Massachusetts marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your Massachusetts tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.

You can think of the bracketed income tax as a flat amount for all of the money you earned up to your highest tax bracket, plus a marginal percentage of any amount you earned over that.

For earnings over $0.00, you'll pay 5.25% plus $0.00
For earnings over $0.00, you'll pay 5.25% plus $0.00

Massachusetts Tax Estimator

You can use the income tax estimator to the left to calculate your approximate Massachusetts and Federal income tax based on the most recent tax brackets.

Keep in mind that this estimator assumes all income is from wages, assumes the standard deduction, and does not account for tax credits.

Deductions

When calculating your Massachusetts income tax, keep in mind that the Massachusetts state income tax brackets are only applied to your adjusted gross income (AGI) after you have made any qualifying deductions.

Qualifying deductions might include an itemized deduction, the Massachusetts standard deduction, exemptions for dependants, business expenses, etc.

Remember that Massachusetts may have very different deduction laws from the Federal Income Tax, so you may have to write a whole new list of deductions for your Massachusetts income tax return.
