Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
How are you today?
You are not liable for MA income tax. You are not a resident
and you are performing your services from Florida
If your employer withholds MA tax, you will get it back by filing a tax return
yes, from florida. I will be required to be in the Boston office approx 5 days per month for the first several months and then less frequently thereafter however.
should I request that my employer's payroll company not withhold the MA tax? I have been told that I could do that by writing them correctly
That is correct. You are not working enough in the state to establish residency
You could ask that MA taxes no longer be withheld
