Hello, THANK YOU for choosing Just Answer. My goal is to help make your life...a little...LESS taxing.


Q: SHOULD I REPORT MY RI RENTAL TO THE STATE OF MASS

A: No, as a non-resident of Mass, you are only required to report Mass source income. SEE BELOW.

Massachusetts tax law distinguishes between residents and nonresidents. Residents are generally taxed on all of their income; nonresidents are only taxed on their Massachusetts source income. Nonresidents are required to file an income tax return with Massachusetts if their Massachusetts gross income (Massachusetts source income) exceeds either $8,000 or their prorated personal exemption, whichever is less.
