PA Tax Amnesty 2016

Pennsylvania has authorized a Tax Amnesty program which will run a consecutive 60 days from April 21st, 2017 through June 19th, 2017.

The Tax Amnesty program will apply to taxpayers who are delinquent on a payment of a liability for eligible taxes administered by the Department of Revenue (whether known or unknown to the Department) as of December 31st, 2015. Taxpayers include any person, association, fiduciary, partnership, corporation or any other entity required to pay eligible taxes.

Participants in the program will be granted amnesty for eligible taxes with waiver of 100% of penalties and 50% of interest.

For taxpayers who are eligible for the Tax Amnesty program, but choose not to participate, a noncompliance penalty of 5% will be added to the balance due.

The Department will be mailing notices to taxpayers with known delinquencies with instructions on how to apply.

Participants in the 1996 Tax Amnesty program are eligible for the 2017 Tax Amnesty Program.  Participants in the 2010 Tax Amnesty program are disqualified for participation in the current program.
