Illinois issues information about tax amnesty program

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The Illinois Department of Revenue (department) has issued an informational bulletin concerning 2019 Illinois Tax Delinquency Amnesty Act (Act) for all taxpayers who have outstanding Illinois tax debt. The Act provides the opportunity for taxpayers to pay outstanding eligible tax liabilities and to have eligible penalties and interest forgiven on taxes paid in full from periods ending after June 30, 2011, and prior to July 1, 2018. To participate, taxpayers must make full payments of their eligible tax liability between October 1, 2019, and November 15, 2019, following which eligible penalties and interest will be waived. Taxpayers who owe only penalty and interest, do not qualify for the amnesty program. The full text of the bulletin can be found at https://www2.illinois.gov/rev/research/publications/bulletins/Documents/2020/FY2020-05.pdf. (Informational Bulletin FY 2020-05, Illinois Department of Revenue, August 1, 2019.)
