With WebFile for Income Stepping Aside, MassTaxConnect Steps Up

MassTaxConnect, the Commonwealth’s new tax revenue system, will be expanding to include fiduciary and other taxes on December 5, 2016.

As you may already know, WebFile for Income is now officially closed as we prepare to expand MassTaxConnect. Business taxpayers were introduced to the new system last November, and already more than 80% of them have taken advantage of the new features.

Some Things Won’t Change for MassTaxConnect

  • Use your WebFile for Income username and password for MassTaxConnect
  • All payments, including estimated and extension, can be made through MassTaxConnect
  • Filing returns through third party software will continue to be an option
  • View payment history
  • Request a Certificate of Good Standing

What’s New with MassTaxConnect?

  • File original and amended returns
  • Print or request copies of returns
  • Set up payment plans online
  • Dispute penalties and audit assessments
  • View notices
  • Manage account access for tax preparers electronically
  • Penalty and interest calculator

Please note that account information for tax year 2010 and after will be carried over to MassTaxConnect.
