Taxpayers who have received a Tax Amnesty Notice from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) may be eligible to participate in a 60-day Amnesty Program. Under the Amnesty Program, the DOR will waive certain penalties (and penalty interest) if an “eligible” taxpayer makes full payment of all tax and interest due for the taxes and tax periods listed on the Tax Amnesty Notice.
In addition to paying tax and interest in full, participants must agree to waive both the possibility of receiving any refund and also the possibility of contesting liability for amounts paid pursuant to the Amnesty Program.
The Amnesty Program ends on May 15, 2015.
