It’s fun; it’s easy; it could make a difference in how the MA Department of Revenue does business. When Commissioner Amy Pitter learned about the Government Innovation Office’s online crowdsourcing tool, iCatalyst, she believed it could bring tax practitioners to the table for a conversation. Now, that conversation is picking up steam.

DOR teamed up with the Massachusetts Society of CPAs to get practitioners to weigh in on their clients’ needs as part of the 2014 Small Business Initiative. Through iCatalyst, practitioners can share where DOR can improve its processes by adding their own ideas, commenting on what colleagues are saying, or by simply voting up or down on other people’s ideas.

As practitioners contribute to the conversation, iCatalyst’s formula allows the most popular ideas to bubble to the top, giving DOR a sense of what the pressing issues are. Commissioner Pitter plans to use the top ideas to bring about changes in the Department.

REGISTRATION for the challenge is simple, and practitioners can login any time to see what’s being said. The conversation is only open for a limited time, so JOIN TODAY!
