Louisiana Resumes 2015 Tax Amnesty Program
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Louisiana Tax Amnesty 2015 Program has started again.
The program, which gives individuals and businesses that have fallen behind on their taxes an opportunity to make a fresh start, will run through Dec. 31.
The Louisiana Department of Revenue suspended the program last month after discovering a mistake with the information included in some of the original amnesty invitation letters. At that time, the department determined it was in the best interest of the state and taxpayers to suspend the program until corrected letters were mailed.
Impacted taxpayers were mailed updated letters from the department during the week of Nov. 23-27. The revised letters either informed taxpayers of the new amnesty amount that is due or instructed them to disregard the previous letter that they received.
