Organizational umbrella decisions crucial to tax requirements

A New England charity aimed at helping to keep the local dairy economy going is having to clean up a little spilled milk. Improper business formation and planning has forced the group to reorganize as s 501C3 Corporation and pay more than a third of its earnings in taxes. However, because it was a self-imposed audit that recognized the mistakes, the IRS is not seeking any punitive tax collection actions.

State legislature says Massachusetts tax breaks too generous

The state of Massachusetts returns an estimated $26 billion in tax breaks each year. That means, the state could have an additional $26 billion in the coffers if it changed its various tax incentives and exemptions for businesses. A panel convened last year by Gov. Patrick and the state legislature called the Tax Expenditure Commission approved the group's final report calling from less tax breaks and a periodic review of our current tax breaks to ensure they are meeting goals.

Fenway Park hits tax credit homer with new historic title

Boston, already full of historic places and American treasures, can now officially add one more to the tour; Fenway Park. The hundred-year-old ball park will forever be protected with its new designation on the National Register of Historic Places. As a thank you for all the preservation work done on the stadium the federal government will return at least $40 million in tax credits to the team.

Merry Christmas Massachusetts and a happy tax audit?

With the New Year just around the corner families in Massachusetts come together to celebrate the close of 2011 with those who are closest to them. They gather around the Christmas tree and share stories, exchange gifts and enjoy one another's company. Nothing puts a damper on the holidays more than a notice from the IRS about a tax audit or a claim that you still owe money from last year.

Tax collection case surrounds Catholic church

Not even Boston churches are immune from tax collection cases. It has been reported that the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston is attempting to recoup past property taxes it already paid on a former church. That church, located in the town of Scituate, was closed in 2004. The tax refund claims in dispute were paid between 2008 and 2011.
