Successful Advocacy for Aligning Mass Tax Filing Deadlines With Federal Government

Tax filing due date conformity is important and necessary for our tax system to provide certainty and consistency for businesses in the Commonwealth, so the Chamber successfully advocated for the inclusion and passage of provisions in a FY17 Supplemental Budget that would align Massachusetts tax filing deadlines for certain corporations with those of the federal government. 

The Chamber, in coordination with other business organizations, worked for the passage of these provisions with leadership in the House and Senate, and we thank the Legislature and Administration for focusing on this important issue. Governor Baker signed these provisions into law on March 28, 2017.
