DOR's Office of the Taxpayer Advocate and Problem Resolution Office will meet with tax practitioners from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 23, at Holyoke Community College in the Kittridge Center, Room 303. Parking is in the D lot.

No registration is required, but those who plan to attend are asked to send an email to taxadvocate@dor.state.ma.us.

The Holyoke meeting with practitioners is the first in a monthly series that will continue around the state through the fall. DOR will post notice when the schedule is set.

While DOR representatives will make a brief presentation, the real point of the session is to hear tax practitioners discuss ways they believe DOR can work more effectively and efficiently. "We want to find out how we can assist practitioners," said Taxpayer Advocate Dennis Buckley.

A similar session held in Boston last year has resulted in DOR exploring the establishment of a central file to record receipt of power of attorney notices. Practitioners explained that POA's mailed to individual workers in DOR must be re-sent if another worker gets involved in a tax case, which happens frequently.

DOR officials will speak briefly about the process for filing abatements and appeals.

Notice of this meeting, and future meetings, was sent via a list serve from DOR's Rules and Regulations unit. To sign up to receive DOR legal communications click here.
