Taxpayer Privacy
AIM strongly opposes An Act Relative to Tax Expenditure Information, which would provide the state auditor with unfettered access to corporate information, including but not limited to tax returns, under the guise of reviewing tax expenditures.



AIM Supports

An Act Updating the Research and Development Tax Credit
Simplifies the R&D tax credit and encourages capital investment by aligning the state and federal provision for "base amount" and limiting the credit to 5 percent of the fixed base percentage.

An Act Improving the Tax Administrative Laws of the Commonwealth
Reforms current administrative procedures in favor of more efficient collections of taxes and settlements.

An Act Relative to Equalizing the Department of Revenue Interest Rates
Equalizes the current short-term interest rate on money owed by a taxpayer to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR)  from a high of 4 percent compounded daily to a rate of 2 percent simple interest, which is the current rate paid by the DOR to a taxpayer when the taxpayer is due a refund or has overpaid.
