State Revenue Dept. offering amnesty to tax-delinquent businesses

Last weekend’s one day special session in Olympia produced a first-ever amnesty offer for Washington businesses who are delinquent on back taxes. 

Administered by the state Department of Revenue, the program is expected to generate $24 million for the state and nearly $4 million for local government.

The deal applies to state business-and-occupation and public-utility taxes and state and local sales and use taxes.  It’s open to registered and unregistered businesses and gives the option of payment without penalties and interest.

Qualifying taxpayers can apply for the program from Feb. 1 to April 18, and must pay back taxes by April 30. The revenue department plans having application procedures ready by mid-January.
