Kentucky tax amnesty to end Friday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Taxpayers who know they still owe the state of Kentucky have just a few hours left to pay up without facing a penalty.  After two months, the tax amnesty program ends Friday.

Kentucky hopes to generate more than $60 million through the deal.  It allows delinquent taxpayers to avoid prosecution if they pay up now.

The Department of Revenue says it has received as many as 1,000 calls a day during the amnesty period. 

The amnesty offer is intended to help balance a two-year, $19 billion budget that mandated 8.4 percent cuts to most state agencies and programs.
