How do I complete the voluntary disclosure process?

A company must, within 30 days from receipt of the VDA, do the following to complete the voluntary disclosure process:

  1. Complete, sign, and return the VDA, application for registration (if necessary), the RAGRET returns provided with the VDA, and a check for the amount of tax due.
  2. The Department will notify the taxpayer of the amount of interest due.
  3. Once the Department has received the interest due, reviewed the documentation provided and verified there has been no prior contact by the Department, a counter-signed copy of the agreement will be returned to the taxpayer.
