    More than 15,000 Mass. residents made more than $1 million. Here’s where they live.

    The Massachusetts Department of Revenue has released its latest report on million-dollar earners in each city and town across the state.

    Altogether, there were 15,422 residents statewide who reported an adjusted gross income of more than $1 million in the 2014 tax year, the most recent year for which data is available.

    That marked a 22 percent increase from the 12,598 residents who earned over $1 million in 2013, and a 47 percent increase from the number of million-dollar-earning residents in 2010.


    Going back even further, in 2004, there were just 7,895 residents who reported an adjusted gross income of more than $1 million. That’s about half the number for 2014.
