  • On October 9, Governor Edward G. Rendell signed into law House Bill 1531 (Act 48) ending Pennsylvania’s 2009-2010 budget stalemate. Act 48 authorizes a tax amnesty program, which is scheduled to commence April 26, 2010 and to end June 18, 2010 (“Amnesty Period”). During the Amnesty Period, any tax administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue (“Department”) that is delinquent as of June 30, 2009, will be eligible for amnesty. Participating taxpayers will receive a waiver of all penalties and onehalf of any interest due (“Program”).
