2014 Massachusetts: Tax Exempt Interest

As a nonresident of Massachusetts, tax exempt interest is not included in Massachusetts taxable income.

Certain taxpayers, who were nonresidents of Massachusetts and received tax exempt interest, may have filed an incorrect Massachusetts tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.
