Massachusetts Revenue Commissioner Amy Pitter today named 16 people who represent a broad range of taxpayer interests to sit on the agency’s new Advisory Council, including Former Co-Chair of the BBA's Tax Section David Nagle of Sullivan & Worcester
. The council, which will hold its first meeting on January 30, is the centerpiece of the Commissioner’s DOR 360 initiative to improve efficiencies at the agency and open new avenues of communication with the communities DOR serves.
The Council will meet three to four times a year and will be expected to tackle such topics as audit practices, customer service and communications for taxpayers and practitioners, new and proposed business practices, DOR guidance on tax matters and concerns or issues that council members bring to the table.
“Our goal in forming the Advisory Council was to bring different perspectives to DOR in changing tax policies and practices to improve the customer experience,” said Commissioner Pitter. “It was really important to us that council membership reflect different groups of taxpayers, especially those DOR doesn’t normally hear from. We are fortunate to have attracted a diverse roster of leaders from different industries.”
