Kuster Statement on SCOTUS Decision To Reject NH Lawsuit Against Massachusetts for Outrageous Income Tax on Granite Staters
Washington, June 28, 2021
Washington, D.C. — Today, Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States dismissed a lawsuit filed by New Hampshire against Massachusetts for unfairly collecting income taxes from Granite State workers who have been working from home during the COVID-19 public health crisis:
“I am extremely disappointed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to consider New Hampshire’s lawsuit seeking to protect Granite State workers from being unfairly taxed by Massachusetts. The Supreme Court’s refusal to consider this case could have long-term consequences for our state’s workforce and places additional financial strain on hardworking NH families who are being forced to pay income taxes for a state in which they do not live during a public health and economic crisis.
“I maintain that the Massachusetts rule change is an unconstitutional violation of state sovereignty, and I will continue working in Congress to pass laws and ensure no state has the authority to infringe upon the economic freedom and liberty of our New Hampshire citizens.”
