The Massachusetts Department of Revenue believes that voluntary compliance is the cornerstone of our tax system. The goal of the Department is to ensure that all taxpayers living in Massachusetts or doing business in Massachusetts are registered, collecting and paying the taxes they are obligated to pay.
In an effort to further increase compliance and foster cooperation, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue has a Voluntary Disclosure Program for taxpayers who wish to report previously unpaid tax liabilities. It is an opportunity for taxpayers to come forward voluntarily in a user-friendly and informal process.
The initial contact on most voluntary disclosures is a letter from the representative giving a brief general description of the company's activities and what the company is seeking by coming forward.
The letter should include the following:
The Department will respond with a letter outlining the Department's position. At that time the company can decide whether or not to disclose.
If the taxpayer has liability in more than one state it may consider applying for multi-state voluntary disclosure through the Multistate Tax Commission. More information about the MTC's Voluntary Disclosure Program and the application for Multi-state Voluntary Disclosure is available.
For these programs, contact the Corporate Tax Audit Bureau by mail, phone, fax or e-mail.
