Do you or your business owe back taxes?  If so, check out a tax amnesty program which will run from April 1, 2016 to May 31, 2016.

Individuals and businesses can amend earlier filings or submit delinquent tax returns during this period.  Tax penalties and interest on those penalties will be waived.  An online amnesty form is available on the Department of Revenue website.  Electronic payment of taxes owed is required when the return is filed.  If taxpayers participated in the 2014 or 2015 amnesty program, they are not eligible for the same tax period.  Also, taxpayers who have filed a fraudulent return or have been the subject of a criminal tax-related investigation are excluded from the program.  For more details, go to the DOR website.
