What is Tax Amnesty?
The 2011 Tax Amnesty Program is an opportunity for delinquent taxpayers to pay their state taxes and have their penalty charges waived. Taxpayers who qualify would also avoid criminal prosecution by the Michigan Department of Treasury.
The Tax Amnesty Program runs from May 15, 2011 through June 30, 2011. The complete amnesty application and full payment, including interest, must be postmarked by June 30th to be eligible, but taxpayers are encouraged to apply early to avoid the continued accrual of interest.
All state taxes administered under the Revenue Act (PA 122 of 1941) are eligible for amnesty, including Income Tax, Michigan Business Tax, Sales Tax, Use Tax, Withholding Tax, and others. Tax periods covered under amnesty are limited to tax periods ending on or before December 31, 2009. Local taxes, including property taxes, are not eligible for amnesty.
How to Apply
To apply for Tax Amnesty, an Amnesty Application (Form 3855) and full payment of all taxes and interest due must be postmarked to the Department of Treasury by June 30, 2011. Full instructions and all the necessary forms are available on the Tax Amnesty How to Apply page.
