A new Mass. tax could impact your planning

In November 2022, Massachusetts voters approved an amendment to the state constitution that creates a 4 percent surtax on annual income over $1 million. This “millionaire tax” is effective beginning in the 2023 tax year. Generally, income that is currently subject to the Massachusetts 5 percent flat income tax is subject to the new surtax.

Keep in mind that a gift to UMass Chan can provide a charitable deduction that lowers both state and federal income taxes. Consult your advisors, and please let us know if we can help you explore gift planning options and benefits.
