BATON ROUGE, LA — Louisiana Secretary of Revenue Tim Barfield will discuss a statewide tax amnesty program during a kickoff event in Kenner for LA Tax Amnesty 2013: A Fresh Start.
The Fresh Start program runs until Friday, November 22. It offers delinquent taxpayers and non-filers a chance to settle their accounts with the Louisiana Department of Revenue by paying all taxes due, with a waiver of all penalties and 50 percent of the interest owed.
Secretary Barfield will speak with taxpayers and the media during an appearance at the headquarters of the Society for Louisiana Certified Public Accountants (LCPA) at LCPA headquarters in Kenner.
Information about the Fresh Start program is available at www.ldrtaxamnesty.com, where eligible taxpayers can submit amnesty applications and make payments electronically.
