Connecticut’s program is already open and runs through November 30, 2018. Connecticut’s amnesty program includes periods up through December 31, 2016. Connecticut will waive all of the penalty and 50% of any interest due.
Texas will offer an amnesty for most taxes due prior to January 1, 2018. The amnesty period runs from May 1, 2018 through June 29, 2018 and includes full penalty and interest waivers.
