Deal with Tax Warrants Sooner than Later
The Indiana Department of Revenue is providing a tax amnesty program from September 15 to November 16, 2015. This program is designed to help individuals and businesses with outstanding tax liabilities or unfiled taxes to get caught up.
The tax amnesty program is only applicable to unpaid liabilities or unfiled taxes prior to January 1, 2013. This post takes a look at how getting caught up can help individuals and businesses qualify for tax warrant expungement.
How Can I Qualify for Tax Expungement?
Individuals and businesses with 2013 or 2014 non-filing or tax liabilities will want to get those paid as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more interest you will owe.
Indiana’s 2015 tax amnesty program offers an opportunity to get the years prior to 2013 taken care of. You can save a significant amount of money by paying debts from the previous years before taking care of 2013 and 2014. However, 2013 and 2014 should not be ignored. The first step to getting tax warrants expunged is to be completely caught up on your taxes due to the state of Indiana.
What Do I Need to Know About Tax Warrant Expungement?
In order to qualify for tax warrant expungement, you must file for the expungement by September 16, 2016. All of your filings must be completed and your taxes have to be completely up to date to the present, not just to 2013. 2013 is the first year that is outside of the Indiana tax amnesty period.
If a tax warrant is expunged, it is removed from your record. Since tax warrants can have an adverse effect on your credit rating, this is a great opportunity for a fresh start.
