Form PV: Massachusetts Income Tax Payment Voucher

The Massachusetts Income Tax Payment Voucher, also known as Form PV, is a document used to submit payments for your state income tax liability to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR). It serves as a companion to your tax return, indicating the amount you owe and providing instructions for sending your payment.

It serves two key purposes:

A. Identifies Your Payment: Form PV helps the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) properly credit your income tax payment to your tax account.

B. Provides Payment Details: The form allows you to include relevant information about your payment, ensuring accurate processing.
