If you are a delinquent taxpayer in Louisiana an amnesty program to help you out begins next Monday.
The tax amnesty period will allow taxpayers to pay back state taxes without penalties and only owe half the interest charges.
Lawmakers approved plans for the tax amnesty program as a way to drum up cash for this year's $25.4 billion budget.
They anticipate collecting $200 million this year from the program and will plug the expected money into the department of health and hospitals budget.
The amnesty period ends November 22nd.
