They withhold federal taxes, SS, and Medicare, but they don't withhold Mass state taxes. Is this allowed? I looked at this FAQ:
http://www.mass.gov/?pageID=dorterminal&L=6&L0=Home&L1=Individuals+and+Fa milies&L2=Personal+Income+Tax&L3=Forms+%26+Publications&L4=Publications&L 5=Publications+Index&sidor&b=terminalcontent&f=dor_publ_withholding&cs idor
and relevant question seems to be:
Is a non-Massachusetts employer required to withhold state income tax from wages for a Massachusetts resident?
If I'm reading it correctly, they wouldn't have to withhold if I worked outside MA, but since I work in MA I think they're supposed to withhold.
Nevada doesn't have an income tax, so at least I don't have to worry about paying taxes to two states.
I'm also curious about what household expenses I can deduct now that I work from home. I live alone in a small, 1-bedroom condominium apartment, so all expenses are attributable to me. Assuming I work 8 hours/day, could I deduct 1/3 of my electric bill?
