Excess Deductions Against Trade or Business Income
sched. C-2

Massachusetts Department of Revenue Schedule C-2 Excess Deductions Against Trade or Business Income Generally, taxpayers may not use excess 5.0% deductions to offset interest (other than from Massachusetts banks), dividends and capital gains income. However, where the taxpayer files a Massachusetts Schedule C or a Massachusetts Schedule E, Massachusetts law allows such offsets if the following requirements are met: • The excess 5.0% deductions must be adjusted gross income deductions allowed under MGL Ch. 62, section 2(d); and 2020 • These excess deductions may only be used to offset income that is effectively connected with the active conduct of a trade or business or any income allowed under IRC § 469(d)(1)(B) to offset (losses) from passive activities. To determine if you have excess deductions, complete lines 1 through 6. If line 6 is 0 or greater, you have no excess deductions. If line 6 is less than 0, you have excess deductions and should complete the remainder of Schedule C-2. 11 Total 5.0% income or (loss) (from Form 1, line 10; Form 1-NR/PY, line 12; Form NRCR, line 5a; or Form 2, line 7). . . . . 1 12 5.0% interest exemption (total Massachusetts bank interest or the interest exemption amount, whichever is smaller, from Form 1, line 5a or line 5b; or Form 1-NR/PY, line 7a or line 7b). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 13 Abandoned Building Renovation Deduction (from Schedule C, line 30; Schedule E, line 57; or Form 2, Schedule E, line 3). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 14 Combine lines 1, 2 and 3. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 15 Additional adjusted gross income deductions (from Form 1 or Form 1-NR/PY, Schedule Y, total of lines 2 through 10 and 18; or Form 2, line 8.

About the Individual Income Tax

The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.

Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
