BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The state tax deadline in Massachusetts has been pushed back to July 15 due to the coronavirus crisis.
This follows the federal government's extension on income tax filing. The tax relief is automatic, and no additional forms are required to qualify.
“In partnership with our colleagues in the Legislature, we are committed to providing this flexibility to taxpayers in a way that protects the Commonwealth’s strong fiscal footing that we have all worked hard to develop over the past several years," Governor Charlie Baker said in a statement.
In the same statement, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito said, "This extension will afford taxpayers additional time to file their Massachusetts individual income tax returns as we carry out the historic response to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
Those with questions about their taxes are encouraged to contact the Massachusetts Department of Revenue at (617) 887-6367 or send a message through Mass Tax Connect online.
