Pennsylvania DOR Issues 2010 Amnesty Guidelines

Pennsylvania has issued rules and guidelines for its upcoming tax amnesty program. The 2010 Tax Amnesty will apply to any taxes administered by the Department of Revenue and will run from April 26, 2010 to June 18, 2010. To participate, taxpayers will need to file an online Amnesty return, file all delinquent tax returns and make the required payment within the Amnesty Period. All penalties and one-half of the interest due will be waived. The periods eligible are those where a known or unknown delinquency exists as of June 30, 2009. At the conclusion of the Amnesty Period, a 5% non-participation penalty will be imposed on all un-paid tax, penalty and interest not paid in full during the Amnesty Period.
