WASHINGTON, DC – On Tuesday, Independent Women’s Law Center (IWLC) joined National Taxpayers Union and 15 other organizations on an amicus brief supporting New Hampshire’s remote workers. In New Hampshire v. Massachusetts, the Granite State is asking the Supreme Court to allow the case to proceed, in an effort to protect its remote workers whose state income Massachusetts continues to tax.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, some New Hampshire residents commuted to Massachusetts for work but are now working remotely from their homes in New Hampshire. However, Massachusetts continues to impose its state taxes on the former New Hampshire commuters that do not live nor work in MA due to the pandemic.
Jennifer Braceras, director of IWLC, said, “IWLC stands firmly against policies that penalize or discourage remote work arrangements. And the Court should not countenance Massachusetts’ attempt to tax non-residents who work from home.”
The amicus brief was filed by National Taxpayers Union Foundation, Independent Women’s Law Center, Americans for Prosperity—New Hampshire, Americans for Tax Reform, Cato Institute, Center for a Free Economy, Center for Freedom and Prosperity, Florida Taxwatch, Freedom Foundation of Minnesota, Freedomworks Foundation, Goldwater Institute, Hispanic Leadership Fund, 60 Plus Association, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, Tax Foundation, Tax Foundation of Hawaii, and Taxpayers Protection Alliance.
