Massachusetts Department of Revenue  

DOR manages state taxes and child support. We also help cities and towns manage their finances, and administer the Underground Storage Tank Program. Similarly, our mission includes rulings and regulations, tax policy analysis, communications, and legislative affairs.

Child Support Enforcement Division  

We provide services to parents who pay child support and parents and caretakers who receive child support. Child support is a way for parents to share the financial responsibility for their child, even when they do not live together. Either parent or the child’s caretaker can apply for our services to establish paternity (get an order determining a child’s legal father) or to get, enforce, or change a child support order.

Division of Local Services  

DLS promotes sound municipal finance management practices and supports local officials by providing guidance, training and oversight.
