      District of Columbia Is Offering a Tax Amnesty from August 2 to September 30

      The District of Columbia is offering a tax amnesty from August 2 to September 30, 2010. During this limited timeframe, individuals, businesses and other entities with unpaid DC tax obligations are eligible to receive an abatement of penalties and fees due without fear of criminal penalties.

      The amnesty program applies to the following types of taxes delinquent prior to December 31, 2009:

      • Individual Income
      • Corporate and Unincorporated Franchise
      • Withholding
      • Sales and Use
      • Personal Property
      • Fiduciary Income
      • Motor Fuel
      • Special Event
      • Gross Receipts
      • Estate
      • Tobacco
      • Toll Communication

      Real property taxes and the ball park fee are not eligible for the amnesty program.

      The Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) is mailing amnesty eligibility notices to taxpayers shown on its records as having amnesty-eligible liabilities. Taxpayers who have not filed returns which should have been filed prior to December 31, 2009 should complete those returns and file them with a DC Amnesty Application, together with full payment of the tax and interest due.

      To learn more about the amnesty program, review the Frequently Asked Questions,visit www.dctaxamnesty.com, or call the Office of Tax Revenue (OTR) at (202) 727-4TAX(4829).
