A power of attorney is required if the representative is seeking to act on behalf of a taxpayer and requesting that the Department disclose information contained in tax returns and other documentation. This may include executing waivers and offers of waivers of restrictions on assessments or collection of deficiencies in taxes, and waivers of notice of disallowance of a claim for credit or refund. A client may designate a third party on MassTaxConnect to file, pay, amend tax returns, and conduct work on their behalf.
First, we recommend filing on MassTaxConnect or through vendor software. It’s fast and easy and provides calculation assistance, instant satisfaction, and an electronic confirmation. If you file on paper, enclose any documents. Don’t attach them with staples or paper clips. It will slow down the processing of your return.
