We know — no one really enjoys tax time, but we here at DOR really do appreciate the time you give in filing your income tax returns with us every year – hey, we have to file tax returns too! And now that April 15 has come and gone, and the dust is settling from the 2008 tax filing season, perhaps you’re wondering how you and your return fit into the larger state filing picture – and what’s coming up for next year.
If so, check out Commissioner Navjeet Bal’s recent filing season video below. The Commissioner runs down a number of tax stats such as how many MA returns were, and will be (after extensions), filed (hint: it’s over 3 million), the average refund amount, e-file numbers, the health care reform effort, and some tips for what to do if you, or someone you know, is having a tough time paying their taxes.
Thanks for taking the time to watch — and for filing those returns!
