BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) today reminded the Commonwealth’s taxpayers that their deadline to file both state and federal personal income tax returns is Wednesday, April 17.
With the tax deadline just a week away, DOR encourages taxpayers to explore the range of free electronic filing options that can help make filing more efficient and less stressful.
Information on the electronic filing options available to Massachusetts taxpayers can be found on DOR’s website, including links to free E-file options for eligible taxpayers and free fillable forms.
“DOR is committed to simplifying the tax filing process and to providing taxpayers with helpful tools and resources,” said Revenue Commissioner Christopher C. Harding. “Electronic filing is a great option for ease of use and may help refunds to be processed more quickly. For the 2017 tax year, a record high of 85% of Massachusetts taxpayers filed electronically.”
Among the benefits of E-File
- Refunds are faster.
- Filing electronically is safe and secure.
- Calculations are done for you.
Massachusetts taxpayers can find more information, including forms, instructions, and tips, on DOR’s website. To avoid penalties, returns for Massachusetts taxpayers must be filed electronically or postmarked by midnight April 17.
