Delaware Division of Revenue Offers a State of Delaware Tax Amnesty Program

From September 1 to October 30, 2009, any individual or business taxpayer who pays their current outstanding State of Delaware tax liability administered by the Division of Revenue will have their interest and penalty fees waived, if registered for the amnesty program.

Individuals or businesses with balances from tax periods before January 1, 2009, must pay their liabilities in full or enter into a payment plan.

Full payment must be received before June 30, 2010, in order to have all penalty and interest fees waived.

Non-filers who file all past-due returns can enter into the same plan as taxpayers with existing liabilities, except the state will waive their tax, penalty and interest fees for all periods filed prior to January 1, 2004.

  • Personal Income Tax
