The Texas Tax Amnesty Program

The Texas Tax Amnesty Program runs from May 1, 2018, through June 29, 2018.

The Texas Tax Amnesty Program will, under certain circumstances, provide delinquent taxpayers with relief from penalties and interest on tax due. Tax amnesty applies to periods prior to Jan. 1, 2018, and only includes liabilities that have not been previously reported to the Comptroller’s office. It does not apply to accounts which have been certified to the Office of the Attorney General; accounts which are presently in litigation; periods that are currently under audit or for which a notice of audit has been issued; or accounts that have been reduced to judgment.

Additionally, the amnesty doesn’t apply to local motor vehicle tax, IFTA taxes, PUC gross receipts assessments or unclaimed property payments.
