Mass. Tax Filing Season Officially Underway

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts has officially begun to accept state tax returns.

The Revenue Department says it has created a “one-stop” page on its website where residents can get tax information and electronically file their returns for free.

Officials say more than 3,200 people have already used the WebFile system since it opened last Wednesday.

The IRS has delayed the opening of the federal tax filing season until Jan. 30.

The state’s tax attorney says the vast majority of its 3.5 million taxpayers filed electronically last year, reducing the cost to the state of processing paper returns and guaranteeing quicker refunds.
