Michigan – Tax Amnesty Period Created

Michigan – Tax Amnesty Period Created

Amnesty begins May 15, 2011 and ends June 30, 2011.

Under legislation signed by Governor Granholm, previously unpaid or underpaid taxes due to the State of Michigan may be voluntarily disclosed and paid to the State without penalty.

The tax amnesty period begins May 15, 2011, and ends June 30, 2011, during which time the state treasurer must waive all criminal and

Civil penalties provided by law for failing or refusing to file a return, failing to pay a tax, or making an excessive claim for a refund for a tax administered by the Department of Treasury.

A taxpayer must make a written request for a waiver, file a return or an amended return, and make full payment of the tax and interest due for any prior tax year not later than the last day of the amnesty period. The amnesty does not apply to taxes due after 2009.
