En Español

Do you owe past-due taxes for a period ending prior to Jan. 1, 2013? If so, it’s not too late to take advantage of Tax Amnesty 2015, a limited-time opportunity for both individuals and business to pay past-due taxes free of penalty, interest and collection fees. Existing tax liabilities for all tax types managed by the department are eligible for Tax Amnesty 2015.

Don’t wait - time is running out! Tax Amnesty 2015 ends at 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Monday, November 16, 2015.
To pay the full amount due or establish a payment plan:

  • Visit www.taxamnesty.in.gov and click “Amnesty Pay”;
  • Call the department toll-free at 1-844-TAXES-IN (1-844-829-3746);
  • Visit one of the department’s 12 office locations; or
  • Mail the coupon attached to your letter with the full amount due.

In return for the full payment of the base tax, the state will:

  • Waive penalties, interest, and collection fees for eligible liabilities;
  • Release tax liens that have been imposed on existing liabilities; and
  • Not seek civil or criminal prosecution against any individual or entity.

Indiana’s first tax amnesty program was conducted in 2005. Taxpayers who participated in the 2005 amnesty program are not eligible to participate in Tax Amnesty 2015.

Tax Amnesty 2015 is authorized by the biennial budget in House Enrolled Act 1001, which was signed into law by Governor Mike Pence in May 2015.
