Texas – Fresh Start Amnesty Program Announced

Program applies to multiple taxes administered by the Comptroller’s office.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has issued a notice to taxpayers announcing the Fresh Start tax amnesty, which applies to businesses that owe sales tax, franchise tax, or other state and local taxes and fees administered by the comptroller. During the amnesty period of June 12 through August 17, 2012, taxpayers can avoid penalties and interest by filing or amending reports and paying any overdue taxes. The amnesty does not cover amounts originally due after April 1, 2012, underpaid tax returns (i.e. previously reported tax that was not paid), or taxes owed for filing periods that businesses have in audit.
