Dealing with personal or business related finances can get confusing, especially when it comes to caring for unfiled taxes for previous years. Recently, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed into law an Amnesty bill that will allow some relief on the state level for those who have unpaid taxes arising on or before December 31, 2014.

The general requirements for the amnesty program are as follows:

  • Only unpaid Missouri state taxes are eligible for amnesty.
  • Taxes must be filed and paid in full between September 1, 2015 and November 30, 2015.
  • Participants must agree to comply with Missouri state tax law for the next 8 years.
  • Amnesty does not apply to penalties, additions to tax and interest paid before September 1, 2015.

In order to enroll in this program, unfiled taxes from before December 31, 2014 cannot be paid until September 1, 2015.
