Yesterday, the DOR officially launched its newest online portal for filing and paying business taxes in the Commonwealth: MassTaxConnect. MassTaxConnect has replaced WebFile for Business, offering all the benefits the old system offered, along with a host of new functionalities that will make paying and filing taxes in Massachusetts easier, simpler, and more efficient than ever before.
Users can access MassTaxConnect at the following URL:
Same username and password!
As someone who has filed or paid taxes online with us in the past, you’ll be able to immediately log-in to MassTaxConnect using your WebFile for Business username and password.
The first time you log on to MassTaxConnect from a new computer, you will be asked for an authentication code as an additional security measure. Request the code in the pop-up window and enter it on the login page. Be sure to click “trust this computer,” and you’ll only have to do this once for any given computer.
To help make the transition to the new system as smooth and seamless as possible, we’ve redesigned our MassTaxConnect informational page with an arsenal of resources at your disposal. This includes tutorials, FAQs, and DOR contact information if the site does not adequately answer your questions.
Perhaps most importantly, DOR has put together a series of mini-video tutorials that show you step-by-step how to complete the following tasks in MassTaxConnect:
Log-in as an existing WfB user

Once you’re in the system, you’ll notice that you have a new alphanumeric account identification number. This will replace federal employer identification numbers and other personally identifiable information. Doing so will enhance the security of our system and protect your identity from fraudsters. Take note: You’ll also soon be receiving a letter in the mail with your new account ID.

As summer winds down and the calendar turns to September, let’s take a look at what kind of calendar you’re turning.
There are clothes shoppers who only buy new, and there are shoppers who do a happy dance at the mere sound of the word “Resale.” While the former may snag the hottest fashions of the moment, the latter group gets to enjoy the thrill of the hunt PLUS they save major amounts of money in the process.
