Do New Hampshire residents pay Massachusetts Income Tax?
« on: January 30, 2011, 12:09:19 pm »

I may have a job offer in Andover, MA and I need to know whether I will be forced to pay a Massachusetts state income tax if I buy and home and live in New Hampshire.

I think it depends on where the job is located out of.

If you work in Mass, you will file a non-resident Mass return and pay Mass state income tax.

Is it the same rate as a non-resident versus a resident?

I'm trying to do the math.  The job would be in Andover, MA and I'm thinking about living in the Nashua, NH area.

Starting to find stuff.  Thanks for reminding me of the word 'non-resident'.  It has improved the search results:

You can apportion your income if you work some days out of Mass, and can get the company to do the apportionment in your paystub (and their check to the Mass Dept of Revenue).

Yes.

The simple answer is yes.  I live in NH and work in MA and pay MA income tax.  It is a little different though since I don't have to worry about Romnycare's tax penalty for no insurance (which I have anyway).  If you start an LLC that mostly works out of NH you may be able to escape the MA income tax by working through your LLC by a 1099.  How ever you will still get hit by the NH's self employment tax is you make over 50k or so.
