Time to pay up

Tomorrow is the last day to pay back taxes in the city of Detroit penalty-free.

The Tax Amnesty program, which ends Wednesday, November 30, allows Detroit residents to pay overdue property and income taxes without paying penalties. In order to get penalties waived, residents must pay all overdue balances. Only money orders or checks will be accepted.

According to an article on the subject in the online edition of the Detroit News today, the penalty for non-payment of both property and income tax is 1 percent of the unpaid balance per month, up to a maximum of 25 percent.

The amnesty program does not cover accrued interest on overdue taxes.
