Suspension of Driver's License & Professional License
Have to you failed to PAY state taxes? Have you failed to FILE state taxes?
Suspension of Driver's License
The Massachusetts Department of Revenue can suspend your driver’s license, revoke your vehicle registration and suspend any professional license if you:
- Owe taxes to the Mass Dept. of Revenue
- Haven’t filed tax returns
- Miss a payment on your payment plan with the Mass Dept. of Revenue
What?!!! I didn’t even know they could do this!The Mass DOR orders the Registry of Motor Vehicles to suspend your driver’s license and any vehicles registered in your name including the cars that your spouse and children drive. The Mass DOR orders the State Board of Registration to revoke your professional license. These licenses include ALL professional licenses issues by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
How am I suppose to pay them if I can’t drive to work?
How can I run my business without my professional license? I can’t get permits.
Will the police actually arrest me if my license is suspended just because of taxes? I don’t believe this.
I Want to Reinstate My License!
You need Laura Anastasia Brown – a driver’s license attorney and a tax attorney – who has decades of experience with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. She speaks their language and knows what they want to stop the suspension of your license or reinstate it.
The Massachusetts Department of Revenue Can Take Away Your Driving Privileges
State law allows the Department of Revenue to suspend your driver’s license and revoke your car registration. The Mass Dept of Revenue sends you a Notice of Intent to Suspend Driver’s License. Then the countdown begins. The Mass Dept of Revenue tax examiner just pushes a button, and your information immediately goes to the Registry of Motor Vehicles. It’s that easy!
If you are in a Payment Plan and default, the state can also revoke your driver’s license.
Driving with a suspended or revoked license is a CRIMINAL motor vehicle violation.
The police CAN arrest you and tow your car. It is also very expensive. You will have to pay your taxes, fines, towing fees and storage. Then you will have to appear in court for the criminal charge.
There are NO Rights to Appeal
You have NO RIGHTS to APPEAL the revocation, like with a speeding ticket or an OUI charge. No Judge or courtroom. You cannot appeal to the Registry of Motor Vehicles. You are at the mercy of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.

When you get your Professional License Suspended, you now have two state agencies to satisfy: The Massachusetts Department of Revenue and The Division of Professional Licensure.
Now the Mass DOR has taken your driver’s license and your ability to make money.

- How are you going to get a sign off from the city inspectors and get paid?
The licenses of people in the following professions are susceptible to suspension:

- Sheet Metal Worker
- Anyone else that is granted a license by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
There are NO Rights to Appeal
The appeal procedure at the Division of Professional Licensure simply does not apply. That agency is just following orders from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. And just like a driver’s license suspension, there is no appeal procedure for the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.
