Massachusetts Revenue Commissioner Amy Pitter today named sixteen people who represent a broad range of taxpayer interests to sit on the agency’s new Advisory Council. The council, which will hold its first meeting on January 30, is the centerpiece of the Commissioner’s DOR 360 initiative to improve efficiencies at the agency and open new avenues of communication with the communities DOR serves.
The department encouraged tax practitioners, litigators, auditors, corporate and small business leaders, minority advocates and women’s and other business associations across the state to apply for a seat on the council.
“Our goal in forming the Advisory Council was to bring different perspectives to DOR in changing tax policies and practices to improve the customer experience,” said Commissioner Pitter. “It was really important to us that council membership reflect different groups of taxpayers, especially those DOR doesn’t normally hear from. We are fortunate to have attracted a diverse roster of leaders from different industries.” Full Story on DOR Press Release
