Ohio will offer amnesty for individual taxpayers

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Ohioans who are behind on their state taxes will get a chance to catch up when a tax amnesty begins on May 1.

The program is the first for individuals in six years and just the third general amnesty program for Ohio, although the state did begin an amnesty program for businesses in October that is continuing.

The Blade reports the state collected $66 million in past-due taxes during the last general tax amnesty in 2006.

Those who qualify will be able to pay back taxes without penalties and only half the interest owed under the 2012 amnesty program, which runs until June 15.
