As we prepare to launch MassTaxConnect, the Commonwealth’s new state-of-the-art, electronic tax system for individual taxpayers on December 5, 2016, we want you to be aware of two important dates.
On October 26, the current web option for individuals to set up payment agreements will shut down. So, please make sure you’ve arranged any payment agreements by October 26. Payment agreements can be arranged through MassTaxConnect for personal income and other taxes as of December 5, 2016.
The second important date to remember is November 6. If you have a current bill, and want to pay it electronically through WebFile for Income, it must be paid before it shuts down at midnight on November 6, 2016. After that date, your current outstanding bill must be paid by mail using the payment coupon attached to the bill. Beginning December 5, 2106, you’ll be able to make bill payments for any new bills through MassTaxConnect.
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks to the OpenDOR blog for information about filing abatements with Form ABT (which is replacing the Form CA-6), information on filing amended returns and more information on estate and fiduciary taxes.
Please note that if you need assistance during the transition period for arranging payment agreements or paying bills, please contact customer service at (617) 887- 6367.
It is important to note that these deadlines do not impact business taxpayers using MassTaxConnect.
