The Michigan Department of Treasury has kicked off the public awareness effort for the state's tax amnesty program under the theme "All Excuses Welcome." The amnesty period runs from May 15, 2011, through June 30, 2011. Regardless of the reason a taxpayer has fallen behind, any individual or business that has a state tax debt or that has not filed a tax return for a qualifying tax year can avoid penalties and prosecution through the tax amnesty program.
