I live and work in PA. My W-2 has the correct PA wages & tax but it also has MA wages & tax. I never worked in MA. Do I need to file a MA return? It is a small amount so I don't really care about a refund.
If you did not work in MA then none of your income is taxable in MA. As such, you would not have to file a Massachusetts return.
However, keep in mind that Massachusetts receives the W-2 as well. If they ask questions as to why you chose not to file a Massachusetts nonresident return, you might need to provide documentation that the income was not earned in MA and you did not live in MA.
