By Meymo Lyons

Delinquent taxpayers will get a rare opportunity to pay outstanding taxes and interest to the District of Columbia and avoid criminal prosecution. The D.C. Tax Amnesty program will run from Aug. 2, 2010 through Sept. 30, 2010, offering individuals and businesses the opportunity to pay the piper.

A special website has been set up to help tax delinquents expedite the process of getting right.

Known receivables of $170 million are owed to the District by 42,000 individuals and businesses. Sixty percent are located in the District with 40 percent outside, primarily in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

D.C. is one of a number of jurisdictions implementing tax amnesty periods this year as governments nationwide seek ways to close budget gaps.
