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.
