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.
Please note: Our Massachusetts tax brackets are currently from tax year 2014. Many states adjust their tax brackets yearly, and we will update the Massachusetts tax brackets for 2015 as soon as they become available.

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.
