How do you get rent credit when you pay the Massachusetts housing authority not a private landlord

Rent is money paid to a landlord for the rental or lease of your principal residence in Massachusetts. The maximum deduction amount is $3,000.  It does not matter if you pay this to an individual or the housing authority.

 

When you enter into your Massachusetts tax return there will be a number of screens.  Continue through them until you get to

  1. Additional Massachusetts Deductions.
  2. Select Paid rent to a landlord
  3. Enter the annual amount of rent paid
