MA DOR Announces Relief For Taxpayers Affected By The Cape Cod Tornado.

The Department of Revenue has announced it is taking steps to address the concerns of taxpayers in Barnstable, Brewster, Chatham, Dennis, Harwich, Mashpee, Sandwich, and Yarmouth who have been affected by the recent tornadoes.

The Department recognizes that taxpayers in these areas might be unable to comply with their tax filing or payment due dates occurring on or after the date of the tornadoes and would like to assist those taxpayers as much as possible.

The Department is announcing that it will waive any penalties associated with any late-filed return or payment that was due on or after July 23rd, and before November 15th. The Department will waive penalties for four months, and will later revisit whether any further extensions should be granted.

If any taxpayer in the affected areas receives notice of a penalty for this period they should contact the Department of Revenue at (617) 887-6367.
