2017 Pennsylvania Tax Amnesty Program Begins

Marie K. McConnell      Apr. 24, 2017

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue is offering a 60-day amnesty program from April 21, 2017 to June 19, 2017. The Department will waive all penalties and half of the interest for eligible individuals and entities that participate in the tax amnesty program. Eligible periods for tax amnesty are those where a delinquency exists as of December 31, 2015 and include non-filed tax returns as well as unpaid or under-reported tax liabilities, whether the delinquency is known or unknown to the Department.

Nearly all delinquent state taxes are eligible, including Corporate Net Income Tax, Personal Income Tax, Employer Withholding Tax, Realty Transfer Tax, Sales and Use Tax, Cigarette Tax, Capital Stock Tax, Liquid Fuels Tax and Public Utility Realty Tax. This program does not apply to federal or local taxes, or taxes administered by other states.
