Louisiana Tax Amnesty Program
The Louisiana Department of Revenue announced today that the 2013 period for the Louisiana Tax Amnesty Program, which is entitled Fresh Start, will officially begin on September 23, 2013 and will end on November 22, 2013.
As a reminder, the Louisiana Tax Amnesty Program applies to all taxes administered by the Louisiana Department of Revenue except for motor fuels tax and certain penalties for failure to submit informational reports. For an amnesty application that is approved during the 2013 amnesty period, the Department of Revenue shall waive one-half (1/2) of the interest and all of the penalties associated with the tax periods for which the amnesty is applied. The amnesty program requires taxpayers to relinquish the right to protest or initiate an administrative or judicial proceeding for the taxes which are the subject of the amnesty.
