This proposed law would change the state personal income tax laws if a proposed amendment to the Massachusetts Constitution requiring income tax rates to be graduated is approved at the 1994 state election. This proposed law would: (1) set graduated income tax rates to replace the existing tax rate structure (2) change exemptions and deductions relating to dependents, child care expenses, head of household status and personal exemptions (3) establish a property tax and water rate credit of up to $200 for taxpayers below certain income levels (4) increase the maximum income levels for no-tax status and the limited income credit (5) establish a "capital formation incentive" to replace the existing capital gains exclusion (6) provide that taxpayers will not pay more Massachusetts income tax for 1995 than they would have paid under 1992 law, if their 1995 adjusted gross income is below certain levels (for instance, $60,000 for single filers and $100,000 for married couples filing jointly).
