For those of us in the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts we have to file a state return. A few years ago there was a movement to abolish the state income tax. Somehow it did not pass. I still have not figured that out. But what they did come up with is the "option" to pay a higher rate. Basically, as you finish up your return you choose between the two rates. I always chuckle a bit when it pops up on Turbo Tax. Anyway, I wonder if Senator "Raise The Taxes" Kerry choses the higher rate? Anybody know where to find that info?
