Taxpayers who owe personal or business back taxes accrued before December 2013 have an upcoming opportunity to erase their debt with Kansas.
The state is offering a tax amnesty program where the state will waive penalties and interest assessed by the state for unpaid taxes if the tax debt for an approved application is paid in full between Sept. 1 and Oct. 15, 2015.
“The amnesty program allows taxpayers who have delinquent taxes to erase their debt without the added cost of the penalties and interest that might have been assessed,” said Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan.
The amnesty applies to:
• Income tax (individual, corporate and fiduciary)
• Privilege tax
• Estate tax
• Withholding and estimated tax
• Sales tax (state and local)
• Compensating Use tax (state and local)
• Liquor enforcement tax
• Liquor drink tax
• Cigarette and tobacco products tax
• Mineral severance tax
The program applies to penalties and interest on tax debt accrued for tax periods ending on or before Dec. 31, 2013, and does not apply to matters that are in appeal.
Eligibility information and answers to frequently asked questions are available at www.ksrevenue.org/taxamnesty.html. An application form for the tax amnesty program will be available online at the end of August.
