NEW! Annual Tax Deductible Toll Payments
2008 usage will be posted after Jan. 31st
The Massachusetts Legislature has enacted and codified a personal income tax deduction for certain commuter expenses:
A deduction is allowed from Part B adjusted gross income for tolls paid through a Fast Lane account or for weekly or monthly transit commuter passes for Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority transit, bus, commuter rail or commuter boat, not including amounts reimbursed by an employer or otherwise. In the case of a single person or a married person filing a separate return or a head of household, this deduction shall apply only to the portion of the expended amount that exceeds $150, and the total amount deducted shall not exceed $750. In the case of a married couple filing a joint return, this deduction shall apply only to the portion of the amount expended by each individual that exceeds $150, and the total amount deducted shall not exceed $750 for each individual.
If you have questions about the FAST LANE Tax Deduction, please visit the Massachusetts Department of Revenue Web Site or call DOR Service Center at 1-800-392-6089.
