Louisiana Announces Dates for 2015 Tax Payment Amnesty Program

The Louisiana Department of Revenue has announced that the Louisiana Tax Amnesty 2015 program, which was originally scheduled to run from November 16, 2015 through December 15, 2015, is suspended and will run from December 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. Upon discovering a mistake with information included in some of the amnesty invitation letters, the Department decided to suspend the program until corrected letters are mailed. Impacted taxpayers will receive an updated letter from the Department by December 1. Any amnesty payments received on November 16th or 17th will be applied to the taxpayer’s account when the amnesty period resumes on December 1. Beginning November 23rd, taxpayers can call 1-866-782-9241 for more information about their amnesty account. The 2015 Tax Amnesty Program is the third and final program permitted by Louisiana’s Tax Delinquency Amnesty Act of 2013. Upon the conclusion of the 2015 amnesty program, the Department will offer no new amnesty programs until at least 2025.
