Ohio of­fers busi­ness tax amnesty pro­gram


In­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses be­hind on their state taxes will get a chance to catch up start­ing Jan. 1 and save money at the same time.

The state is launch­ing a tax-amnesty pro­gram that will run from New Year’s Day un­til Feb. 15. Tax­pay­ers who fully pay qual­i­fy­ing tax delin­quen­cies will owe no penal­ties and will pay only half of the in­ter­est nor­mally charged.

The pro­gram ap­plies only to those who have not al­ready been iden­ti­fied by the Ohio Depart­ment of Tax­a­tion as be­ing be­hind on their taxes.

State tax of­fi­cials ex­pect the pro­gram to col­lect at least $20 mil­lion.
