Pennsylvania Department of Revenue issues guidelines for Tax Amnesty Program running from April 21-June 19, 2017

On Sept. 9, 2016, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue released detailed guidelines concerning the implementation of a Tax Amnesty Program established by Act 84 of 2016, the revenue-raising element of Pennsylvania’s fiscal year 2016–17 budget. Act 84 authorized the department to establish the program to run for a 60-day period ending on or before June 30, 2017. The department announced that the program will run from April 21, 2017, through June 19, 2017. The program applies to all Pennsylvania taxes administered by the department for which a known or unknown tax delinquency exists as of Dec. 31, 2015. The department will waive all penalties and 50% of the interest due for those taxpayers meeting all program requirements. To participate, taxpayers must file an online amnesty return, file all delinquent tax returns and make the required payment within the 60-day amnesty period.
