AIM |Tax Alert for Mass Cos. - Personal Property Tax


Manufacturers and other companies entitled to local property-tax benefits must now file online with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) to claim those benefits.

Corporations seeking to maintain favored property-tax status must file an Annual Certification of Entity Tax Status between now and April 1 to ensure that they appear on DOR’s Division of Local Services List of Corporations for 2013. Cities and towns use “The List” to determine which corporations and entities treated as corporations are entitled to local property tax benefits. The List also specifies all entities treated as business corporations for Massachusetts tax purposes that have been granted the “manufacturing corporation” classification.

Should you have any suggestions or questions, please contact Brad MacDougall, Vice President for Government Affairs at 617-262-1180.
