Why should a taxpayer (or “I”) consider applying for tax amnesty?

Tax amnesty provides an opportunity for taxpayers to save significant money because of reduced interest charges and no penalty charges.  It also reduces taxpayer’s future exposure.  Anyone who is granted amnesty and pays in full any outstanding qualifying tax and applicable interest will not be subject to criminal prosecution or civil actions with respect to that tax.
