Massachusetts Extends State Income Tax Filing Deadline to July 15

AAFCPAs would like to make clients aware that Massachusetts announced today an agreement to extend the 2019 state individual income tax filing and payment deadline from April 15 to July 15, consistent with the federal government, due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. This income tax relief is automatic and taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms to qualify.

AAFCPAs expects detailed guidance to follow from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue, as this morning’s announcement did not include guidance on deadlines for Corporation or Fiduciary tax returns, as well as 1st quarter estimates.

We encourage clients to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. We also encourage clients to visit our Coronavirus Resource Center >>, which features up-to-date news, changing guidelines or regulations, and relevant business advice.

If you have any questions please contact: Richard Weiner, CPA, MST at 774.512.4078,; or your AAFCPAs Partner.
