Final day to pay overdue taxes, no questions asked
BATON ROUGE - If you've fallen behind on your taxes, Friday is your last chance to take advantage of Louisiana Tax Amnesty 2014.
The Louisiana Department of Revenue will waive all penalties and cut accrued interest in half if you get up to date before midnight. Under the program, you can also set-up a payment plan and pay your overdue taxes in installments over a six-month period.
The tax amnesty program is part of a plan to collect on 450,000 non-compliant tax accounts owing more than $1.8 billion to the state. The Department of Revenue plans to host another 30-day tax amnesty program in 2015. After that month, officials don't anticipate a similar program until at least 2025.
