The state of Massachusetts is contemplating the sale of ad space in its 1995 state income tax booklets to defray mounting production costs.

A recent report by the state's Executive Office of Administration & Finance found selling advertising in the tax booklets, driver's license manuals, and plumbing regulation booklets could bring in up to $400,000 annually.
