PA Tax Amnesty Program Outlined, Petri Says
9/19/2016
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has announced guidelines for a state tax amnesty program adopted by the General Assembly as part of Act 84 of 2016, Rep. Scott Petri (R-Bucks) said today.

The program, which offers incentives to Pennsylvanians to settle their delinquent tax accounts, is expected to generate as much as $150 million in revenue for the Commonwealth. The program does not “forgive” taxes owed, but instead waives penalties, collection and lien fees, and half of the interest owed.

All taxes owed to the Commonwealth administered by the Department of Revenue are eligible for the program. The delinquent taxes must have been owed as of Dec. 31, 2015. Any unpaid taxes, penalties and interest resulting from periods after Dec. 31, 2015, are not eligible for the program.

To participate, taxpayers must file an online amnesty return, file all delinquent tax returns and make the required payment within the amnesty. They must also ensure any unpaid taxes or unfiled returns not eligible for the program (after Dec. 31, 2015) are submitted.

The amnesty period runs from April 21, 2017, to June 19, 2017. More information is available at revenue.pa.gov.
