Tuesday last day for state tax amnesty

Filed under: Daily News,Government State | Tags:, ,

Today is the deadline for Colorado taxpayers who are behind on their taxes to pay up and avoid penalties under the state’s tax amnesty program.

Under the Colorado Department of Revenue’s program, most delinquent tax payers can avoid penalties and pay half the interest on past due taxes.

The department reported a surge of calls on Monday, forcing officials to provide additional staff to handle the calls. Those who mail their delinquent taxes are required to have it in the mail on Tuesday.
