Louisiana will offer a tax amnesty from November 16, 2015 to December 15, 2015. Taxpayers that agree to pay delinquent taxes will receive a waiver of 33% of penalties and 17% of interest. The 2015 program applies to taxes due prior to January 1, 2015, for which the Louisiana Department of Revenue has issued an individual or business a proposed assessment, a notice of assessment, a bill, a notice, or a demand for payment no later than May 31, 2015. The 2015 program will be the last amnesty program until at least 2025 and taxpayers that do not participate in it may face increased penalties.
