The Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) previously extended the due date for quarterly filings using the new QUEST (Quality Unemployment System Transformation) program two weeks. Since February 15, 2010 was Washington’s Birthday, a federal and state holiday, the deadline was further extended until today, February 16, 2010. Employers who file and pay by today’s extended due date will not be assessed interest or penalties. Filings and payments after today’s extended due date will result in interest and penalties assessed starting on the original due date of February 1, 2010, not the extended due date. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any questions on complying with the DUA’s QUEST program.
