Massachusetts taxpayers need our own “fairness” doctrine

We all know how the liberals say the rich should pay more in taxes because it’s “fair.”

In Massachusetts, how about we start with those pensioners who currently pay NO income tax:

Ten states exclude all federal, state and local pension income from taxation.  These include Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York and Pennsylvania….  These 10 states differ on the taxation of retirement income from private-sector sources.  Kansas and Massachusetts do not exclude any private-sector retirement income, but most of the others allow a fairly broad exclusion.

 

Given the past actions of our legislature, I’m not holding my breath waiting for them to raise more revenue by taxing public pensions.

So, why don’t we make taxation FAIRER in this state by eliminating the income tax for everyone?
