If you failed to pay real estate taxes, corporate taxes, or inheritance and estate taxes prior to December 31, 2015, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue (“PA DOR”) is giving you the chance to do so under its Tax Amnesty Program.
The Amnesty programs runs between April 21, 2017 and June 19, 2017. During that time, the PA DOR will waive all penalties and half the interest for anyone who participates. If you have unpaid taxes, it is crucial to file during this 60 day amnesty program time period. Those who are eligible but choose not to participate will have a 5% nonparticipation penalty added to their balance.
The PA DOR has compiled a list of which taxes are eligible under the amnesty program, as well as which individuals and/or businesses qualify. If you believe you are eligible to apply for the program, partner Heidi Anderson can assist you for matters involving an estate and any outstanding inheritance taxes. Ms. Anderson can be reached in our Philadelphia office at (215) 567-1530.
