Tax amnesty deadline is tomorrow night
Tomorrow is the deadline to take advantage of Rhode Island's tax amnesty program. If you pay what you owe -- and have your application package postmarked by midnight tomorrow -- the state will waive penalties and won't prosecute you. You'll still have to pay interest, but at a rate of 12 percent. On Sunday, the rate the state charges on delinquent taxes will jump to 18 percent, one of the highest such rates in the nation.
So far in the amnesty, which began July 15, the state has collected more than $2.6 in back taxes. Check out the state Division of Taxation Web site for an explanation of the amnesty, the amnesty application form and other information.
