New! Emergency ITIN bill: Did you know that 57,000 MA residents who paid state and federal income taxes in 2019 were denied a federal stimulus check because they used an ITIN number—Individual Taxpayer ID Number?
There is a bill in the MA Legislature to remedy this: S.2659/ HD.503 An Act to Provide Equal Stimulus Checks to Immigrant Taxpayers.
LWVMA supports the bill and the written testimony is attached below. The hearing is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 19th, but only written testimony is permitted.
