Texas announces details of summer amnesty - penalties for non-participants


On March 15, 2012, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts released details of a tax amnesty program that will run from June 12 through August 15, 2012. Under the program, participants will be granted a waiver of penalties and interest on payments made during the amnesty period. Amnesty applies to delinquent returns due before April 1, 2012, and to most state and local taxes and fees administered by the Comptroller's office. Eligible taxpayers that fail to participate in the program are subject to additional penalties. [Project Fresh Start, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, 3/2012]
