State Income Tax Rate to Drop

You'll pay 5.2 percent this coming tax season instead of 5.25 percent.

You'd be forgiven if you thought tax rates only go one direction; up.

The boon for taxpayers is because state revenues met thresholds set for gradual lowering of the tax rate. The decrease will be worth about $39 for a family making $100,000, according to an Associated Press report via the Boston Herald.
