There are three different ways a state can calculate taxes on its residents established by marital status: joint, combined or a system that uses both joint and combined. In Massachusetts incomes from both spouses in a marriage are taxed together as a single amount. Massachusetts also acknowledges same sex marriage and treats these tax payers as any other married couple. Massachusetts follows the federal tax principal that family should be taxed as a single unit.

The base for state taxes in Massachusetts is the federal adjusted gross income, although some income may be left out on the state return due to differences in federal and state tax law.
