Every fall and winter, we hit the road to talk with community members and tax professionals about the upcoming tax filing season and other need-to-know DOR updates.

Of course, like many things this year, we had to rethink what “on the road” would look like in the new normal. Fortunately, it’s a Zoom world now and we can hit the road remotely.

Beginning in November, top shot, Brian Lynch, and DOR’s Taxpayer Advocate, Dana Ackerman, will be bringing their knowledge to several online conferences and tax courses. Their agenda will include the following topics:

  • Upcoming MassTaxConnect upgrade
  • Administrative news
  • MA Tax Implications of the Federal CARES Act
  • COVID relief and
  • Short-term rental exemption.

We’re kicking off our virtual tour in November by joining our friends at the Massachusetts Association of Accountants’ two-day seminar on:

  • November 9 and 10
  • November 16 and 17

Registration is open to both members and nonmembers who are interested in attending. Additionally, Dana, DOR’s Taxpayer Advocate, will be speaking at a Massachusetts Society of Enrolled Agents event.

Then, in December, we’re off to the UMass Tax School for Practitioners, a 2-day course for tax professionals on:

  • December 7 and 8
  • December 14 and 15

If you’re looking to hear from DOR or receive some IRS approved training, this is where you’ll want to be. To get started, register here.
