Massachusetts 2013: Apportioned Business Income

Massachusetts allows businesses to apportion income earned both inside and outside the state by number of working days, mileage, sales, and other measurable ways.

Certain Massachusetts customers, who apportioned the spouse’s Schedule C income, may have filed an incorrect Massachusetts tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.

How to tell if you may be impacted

You may be affected if all of the following apply to you:

  • You filed your non-resident or part-year Massachusetts state tax return prior to March 12, 2014 AND
  • Your federal return includes a Schedule C for you and a Schedule C for your spouse AND
  • The spouse’s Schedule C income was apportioned for Massachusetts.

  • Follow these step-by-step instructions.
  • After you make the changes to your tax return, you will need to mail a copy of your amended state return.
