It’s not often we in Massachusetts can say our taxes are going down, but it’s true. Starting on January 10, 2011 the MA corporate tax rate is going from 8.75% to 8.25%. If you remember, the rate actually went down last year too (from 9.5% to 8.75%). Next year, it’s projected to go down again to 8%. This is all a result of the 2008 Corporate Tax Reform.
Things have been so tough in the Massachusetts construction sector over the last couple of years that any news like this is welcome. Couple this with the drastic reductions we’ve seen in MA contractor’s insurance programs, there is hopefully a little money left in your pocket.
