Massachusetts Millionaire’s Tax Seminar

Date: June 15, 2023 Time: 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Cost: This event is being offered as a free education session.

Location 300 TradeCenter, Suite 7600
Woburn, MA 01801

In November, 2022 Massachusetts voters approved a constitutional amendment in which Massachusetts residents who earn more than $1 million each year will begin paying a new tax. The new tax imposes an additional 4% state income tax on that portion of annual taxable income in excess of $1 million. Revenues from the tax will be used for public education, public colleges and public universities, as well as for the repair and maintenance of infrastructure. Join us for a lively panel discussion with industry experts discussing what effects the new MA Millionaire’s Tax will have as well as strategies to mitigate the effect of the higher tax rate.
