Beginning October 1, 2019, Massachusetts employees and employers will begin making contributions toward the new Paid Family and Medical Leave.
Beginning July 1, 2019, legislation requires collection of taxes and fees if you have a room or property in Massachusetts that’s rented to others on a short-term basis.
We’ve provided a list below for you to determine if one or both of the new laws apply to you. Lots of information is available to guide you through the steps. Please also share this communication with your contacts whether friends, family or co-workers. These changes impact many in Massachusetts and you can help spread the word.
Paid Family and Medical Leave
  • I am a business with at least one Massachusetts employee
  • I am a business that retains independent contractors
  • I am an employee or contractor in Massachusetts
  • I am a sole proprietor or member of an LLC and live in Massachusetts
If you identified with at least one of the bullets, you will want to learn more about the Paid Family and Medical Leave exemption requests, registration, contributions and payments from the Department of Revenue. You’ll find a comprehensive list of FAQs, access to video tutorials and legal guidance.
This new initiative is being led by the Department of Family and Medical Leave and you will find information about coverage, contributions, benefits and much more on the DFML website.
