Tax Amnesty Bill Approved by the Missouri House of Representatives

September 22nd

tax amnestyThe Missouri House of Representatives has recently passed a bill that will provide penalty abatement and amnesty from payments of all interest and other additions to unpaid tax bills. The bill applies to all tax delinquencies related to unpaid taxes such as state income taxes and sales and use taxes that were due prior to December 31, 2010

Qualifying for Amnesty

In order to receive benefits from this bill, qualifying taxpayers must apply for amnesty. They must then file separate tax returns related to each period for which amnesty is requested, and then pay any unpaid taxes between January 1, 2012 and February 29, 2012. Qualifying applicants must also agree to comply with all state tax laws for eight years dating from the time the amnesty agreement was finalized.

The amnesty benefits are not available to any taxpayers who are under criminal investigation or involved in any civil or criminal litigation at the time of payment. This applies to any criminal or civil proceedings occurring in either Missouri or in a federal court for tax-related delinquency issues, such as tax debt or fraud.

If a participating taxpayer violates the terms of the agreement at any time during the eight-year period, the taxpayer will be responsible for any and all interest, penalties, and additions that were previously waived. Violation of terms results in these amounts being owed immediately and in full.

Potential applicants to this program should note that participation constitutes a waiving of any right to administrative and judicial rights of appeal in relation to the relevant tax dispute.
