2015 Tax Amnesty Dates Announced

Posted 8:11 PM by

Many legislative changes were made by the Indiana General Assembly during the 2015 legislative session, one of which included a mandate for the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDOR) to implement a tax amnesty program before 2017.

Yesterday, Gov. Mike Pence announced that IDOR will conduct “Tax Amnesty 2015” from Sept. 15, 2015, through Nov. 16, 2015. 

Similar to the amnesty offered by Indiana in 2005, the program provides an opportunity for individuals and businesses to disclose and pay unreported taxes that were due and payable for a tax period ending before Jan. 1, 2013, in exchange for abatement of penalties, interest, and collection fees or costs that would have otherwise been imposed.

Taxpayers who are eligible to participate in the amnesty program and choose not to participate will be subject to an additional penalty, effectively doubling the penalty that would ordinarily be imposed on a delinquent liability. Taxpayers who participated in the 2005 amnesty program are not eligible to participate.
