Massachusetts' income tax revenue up 2.2 percent since Q1 2019


Massachusetts collected $3.7 billion in individual income taxes during the first quarter of 2019, a 2.2 percent increase over the previous quarter, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Quarterly Summary of State and Local Taxes.

The previous quarter income tax revenue was $3.6 billion.

Individual income taxes are based on net personal income and taxes imposed on such income as dividends, interest and income from intangibles.

In addition to detailed tax revenue data from each state, the Quarterly Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenue includes an estimate of state and local government tax revenue at a national level.

The Census Bureau cautions that it sets the tax classifications among the survey categories, and they may differ from the classifications set by the state governments.

Overall, Massachusetts collected $6.8 billion in combined tax revenues in the previous quarter.
