September 15, 2015 to November 16, 2015
Tax Amnesty 2015 was a limited-time opportunity for both individuals and businesses to pay past-due base taxes free of penalty, interest, and collection fees. Tax liabilities, for all tax types managed by the department, for periods ending prior to Jan. 1, 2013, were eligible to participate in Tax Amnesty 2015. Approximately 40 different tax types were eligible for participation. Taxpayers who participated in the 2005 amnesty program were not eligible to participate in Tax Amnesty 2015.
Tax Amnesty 2015 also allowed taxpayers who failed to file or underreported their tax liabilities to file the appropriate tax returns and pay the base tax. If you elected to take advantage of this program, you shall forego all rights to protest the assessment and are not allowed to file a later claim for refund.
The department identified approximately $545 million in outstanding liabilities that were eligible for collection during Tax Amnesty 2015. Of the outstanding taxes collected, the first $84 million funds the Indiana Regional Cities Development Fund. (Subsequent legislation designated an additional $42 million of collected Tax Amnesty 2015 funds for the Indiana Regional Cities Development Fund.) The next $6 million is allocated to the Indiana Department of Transportation to support the operation of the Hoosier State Rail Line. Remaining taxes collected were deposited into the state general fund.
