WebFile for Income says goodbye as MassTaxConnect welcomes more taxpayers
In anticipation of MassTaxConnect expanding to include 10 additional tax types, WebFile for Income will say goodbye to users on November 6 at midnight.
Save the date – pay bills electronically through November 6
If you want to pay a bill electronically through WebFile for Income, please do that before it shuts down at midnight on November 6. After the 6th, any outstanding bills should be paid by mail using the payment coupon attached to the bill. Payments can be made through MassTaxConnect for any bills issued after December 5.
Save any returns on WebFile for Income
WebFile for Income will be available until midnight on November 6, and we recommend that you save your tax returns as PDF files, if you haven’t already. Keep in mind that you won’t have access to WebFile for Income after the application is shut down, although copies of prior returns may be requested through customer service.
While personal income tax returns can’t be filed through MassTaxConnect , there are options for free filing. In fact, Massachusetts recently joined the Free File Alliance to increase opportunities for taxpayers to file for free. We estimate that approximately 70 percent of taxpayers will qualify to file their state and federal returns together for free.
