Summary:

A proposed federal Enterprise Value Tax will double taxes on business partnerships in Massachusetts, adding $611 million to the state’s federal tax burden. As a result of the tax, the state will lose 5,400 jobs, $9.5 million in investment and $673 million in disposable income.

This is the finding of a new study, The Enterprise Value Tax: What it Means for the Massachusetts Economy, published by the Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University and sponsored by the Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce.
