PA Tax Amnesty

Under Act 84 of 2016, signed into law July 13, 2016, Pennsylvania authorized a tax amnesty period from April 21, 2017 through June 19, 2017.

During this limited 60-day period the Department of Revenue will waive all penalties and half of the interest on eligible tax delinquencies for anyone who participates in the 2017 Tax Amnesty Program.

Eligible periods for tax amnesty are those where a delinquency exists as of December 31, 2015, whether the delinquency is known or unknown to the department.

You may resolve your tax amnesty eligible debt by paying the tax and half of the interest. The department will rescind liens or other enforcement actions for that debt and you save half of the interest, all of the penalty, and any fees, such as lien filing fees and collection agency fees.

Individuals, businesses and other entities with state tax delinquencies as of December 31, 2015, are generally eligible to participate in the Tax Amnesty program. However, if you participated in the 2010 Tax Amnesty program you are ineligible to participate in the 2017 Tax Amnesty program.
