To the people saying YES: Didn't Sununu sue to try and make sure this wasnt the case as the remote workers weren't piling onto the MA infrastructure? I hadn't heard any followup on it.

The supreme court declined to hear the case.

That is honestly ridiculous.

It's not. The State of New Hampshire was not injured.

I mean... with some mental gymnastics you could argue they were- funds that ostensibly would have gone to taxable items in NH (such as fast food) were instead redirected to another state improperly.

If I remember correctly, that was the Supreme Court's rationale as well.

The lawsuit was to address people who didn’t telework before the pandemic. MA created a law saying that if you didn’t telework before the pandemic (February 28, 2020) then you are not eligible to claim tax credit for working at home. This caused Sununu to sue MA, but he was unsuccessful. If you teleworked before the pandemic , you can claim the days you worked in Nh at home as a tax credit.

It's not necessarily a tax credit. In general, excluding pandemic emergency orders, if you don't physically work in a state or live in a state but the company you work for is in that state, you don't file taxes with that state and taxes are not withheld for that state.

Yes, but MA automatically takes state taxes out. Each year, people who work at home in Nh are eligible to apply for a tax credit.

MA should not take any taxes out automatically if the company has you set up correctly.
