Tax amnesty program starts in October

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Delinquent taxpayers wanting to take advantage of the latest Amnesty period can now pay their debts through an installment plan.

Revenue Secretary Tim Barfield hopes the new option will generate interest in the Amnesty program which needs to drum up $100 million to keep this year's state budget in balance.

The next Amnesty period runs Oct. 15 through Nov. 14.
