Massachusetts law requires that when tax revenue collections in a given fiscal year exceed an annual tax revenue cap, the excess revenue is returned to taxpayers. The result: between early November and mid-December of this year, taxpayers will receive a refund check (or direct deposit) from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue labeled “MASTTAXRFD.” Your refund will equal 14.0312% of the personal income tax paid to the state in 2021.
