Tax Amnesty

Welcome To The New York State Tax Amnesty Web site.


From November 18, 2002 through January 31, 2003-eligible New York State taxpayers had the opportunity to apply for Tax Amnesty and pay their overdue state taxes without penalty charges and at a reduced interest rate. Thousands of individuals and business owners took advantage of the amnesty program to come into compliance and pay their outstanding obligations. Tax Amnesty applicants have until March 15, 2003, or the date specified on their tax amnesty bill (whichever is later) to make full payment.

Although the Tax Amnesty application period has ended, Tax Amnesty applicants may continue to use this Web site to review their account status, make Tax Amnesty payments, download tax forms, compute the amount of interest due with a return under Tax Amnesty (by using the online interest calculator), report an address change to the Department, and obtain information about the Tax Amnesty program through the Answer Center.
