Detroit offers tax amnesty

Jan. 16, 2013 at 5:06 PM

DETROIT, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Detroit Mayor Dave Bing announced a tax amnesty program, offering an opportunity to those owing taxes to pay without penalty.

City officials expect to generate about $4 million through the effort, part of Bing's strategy to generate an additional $50 million for the cash-strapped city in 2013, the Detroit News reported Wednesday.

People and organizations with outstanding tax balances from 2011 and from prior years are eligible, the mayor's office said.

The program will begin Jan. 22 and run through Feb. 22, the Detroit Free Press said.
