Pennsylvania: Tax Amnesty Program Set for 2010!
- file an amnesty return online with the PA Department of Revenue;
- file all delinquent tax returns; and
- pay all delinquent taxes plus 50 percent of the interest due.
For each tax delinquent, the department will send a written notice to the last known address on the department’s records. This notice will contain important information for the recipients to participate in the amnesty program.Who Qualifies for Amnesty? Individuals, businesses and other entities with Pennsylvania tax delinquencies as of June 30, 2009, are generally eligible to participate in the amnesty program. Non-filed tax returns or reports, as well as unpaid, under-reported or un-established taxes, whether known or unknown to the PA Department of Revenue, constitute eligible delinquencies. Consequences for Not Participating in Amnesty? If you are eligible for the tax amnesty program, but choose not to participate, the department will add a 5 percent non-participation penalty to your balance due.
