BATON ROUGE – Louisiana Secretary of Revenue Tim Barfield will travel the state to speak with local communities about a tax amnesty program to run from September 23 through November 22.

LA Tax Amnesty 2013: A Fresh Start offers delinquent taxpayers and non-filers a chance to settle their accounts by paying all taxes due, with an exemption from all penalties and 50 percent of the interest.

"We are looking forward to connecting with hundreds of taxpayers as we prepare to launch the Fresh Start program,” Barfield said. “This will be the opportunity needed by many people to clear their account with the Department of Revenue, and we want to help them in any way possible."
