It depends on where the distribution came from. If it was from his town retirement, the distribution would be excludable from Massachusetts state tax, and you would indicate that it was a qualified government retirement distribution after you enter your 1099-R in the federal section. But if it was from an IRA or other type retirement account, it would be taxable in MA.
