RI governor to discuss tax amnesty details
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Islanders who are behind on their state taxes will have a chance to make good on what they owe during a tax amnesty starting soon.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee is set to discuss details of the amnesty program on Wednesday. Chafee signed legislation into law in June that provided for a 75-day tax amnesty period.
It's scheduled to begin on Sunday and end on Nov. 15.
Chafee's office says the program includes incentives to get those who owe taxes to the state to pay.
