Massachusetts Tax Amnesty Starts April 1st
Tomorrow, April 1st, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) will begin the 2016 Tax Amnesty Program that will last until May 31st. The opportunity to catch up on back taxes and save on penalties is available to both individuals and businesses. The goal of the tax amnesty program is to bring those taxpayers who have failed to file or have underreported their taxes into compliance.
We would greatly appreciate assistance from local officials in increasing awareness of this important program, either through driving online traffic to the website (mass.gov/taxamnesty) or by posting this notice in a place of prominence in municipal offices.
Most tax types adminsitered by DOR are included in this amnesty. For additional information, click here.
