On June 21, 2013, Louisiana enacted legislation that creates a tax amnesty program to occur during three to-be-determined periods, one in 2013, one in 2014, and one in 2015. Taxpayers whose amnesty application is approved during the 2013 period are entitled to a waiver of all penalties and 50% of the interest otherwise due. The benefits of tax amnesty decrease if the application is approved during the later periods. Taxpayers should to consider the benefits and consequences of the program before applying for amnesty.
