The Department of Revenue (DOR) is rolling out a new tax filing system, MassTaxConnect, which replaced the current WebFile for Business system on Nov. 30, 2015, and will replace the individual tax income service, WebFile for Income, in 2017.
The service had previously been available for taxes on alcoholic beverages, ferry embarkation fees, the International Fuels Tax Agreement (IFTA), and non-resident motor vehicles.
What You Can Do with MassTaxConnect
MassTaxConnect aims to give taxpayers more reliable and flexible online services, such as the ability to:
- Register and file certain tax obligations online.
- Import information from Excel.
- Make and schedule payments.
- Amend, view, and print previously filed returns.
- View current tax rates.
- Get automatic calculations.
- Review correspondence with DOR.
- Send secure e-messages with attachments.
How to Register
Current WebFile for Business users can log in to MassTaxConnect with their existing username and password. Those who have not filed electronically before can follow the instructions on the MassTaxConnect information page under “Registration & Enrollment.”
How to Stay Updated on MassTaxConnect
DOR will be sending business taxpayers emails, newsletters, videos, how-to guides, and other content to help transition them into the new system. If you are a business taxpayer registered with WebFile for Business, make sure your email is up to date to get the latest news and updates, and to be able to seamlessly transition to MassTaxConnect.
