Pennsylvania amnesty begins this week, but VDA program still the better option for many non-filers


Pennsylvania's tax amnesty program begins April 21, 2017. Taxpayers that are considering amnesty should remember that Pennsylvania's voluntary disclosure agreement ("VDA") program for non-filers remains open during the amnesty period.

Any taxpayer eligible for Pennsylvania's VDA program should carefully consider the benefits and risks of the VDA program before choosing amnesty. Many taxpayers will find that the VDA program terms are actually more beneficial.
