Massachusetts has a flat income tax rate which applies to both single and joint filers. The Federal Income Tax, in contrast to the Massachusetts income tax, has multiple tax brackets with varied bracket width for single or joint filers.
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.

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.
