The MA Office of the Attorney General announced in a press release that in an effort to promote efficiency in the completion and processing of charities filings, effective September 1, 2023, charities will need to fulfill their regulatory filing obligations to the AG’s Office using the online Charity Portal, launched in 2022; the Office will no longer accept paper submissions. This online filing mandate provides a more efficient way for charities to comply with annual filing obligations and enables the Office to more quickly make the information available to the public on the Office’s website.
