  In an address to tax professionals attending the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation's annual tax MTF speech 10 26 12conference, Revenue Commissioner Amy Pitter announced that she will appoint a 15 member Advisory Council to serve as a liaison between DOR and our varied stakeholder communities.

The purpose of the Advisory Council is to bring taxpayers, practitioners, community advocates and professional associations to the table who will have ideas, input and different perspectives on tax policies, practices and administration. Members will be allowed to propose any idea or topic that’s of broad interest to the group except any individual taxpayer matter. Examples of potential topics include audit practices, federal tax developments impacting Massachusetts, responses to court decisions or legislation, new and proposed business practices, guidance on recent or upcoming tax matters and the status of on-going DOR projects.

The Advisory Council is the centerpiece of the agency’s DOR360 campaign to improve communications with DOR customers and embolden citizen/business participation in shaping tax administration.  Learn More
