Indiana Stops Contractor From Sending Tax Amnesty Letters

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The Indiana Department of Revenue has stopped a state contractor from sending out a letter that spurred complaints after it told about 150,000 taxpayers they owed back taxes when they weren't verified as being behind. 
 
The state agency's move to halt the letter was first reported by WTHR-TV. The letter was looking to get people to participate in the state's tax amnesty program.
 
The amnesty period gives taxpayers a chance to pay off tax debt dating from before 2013 without the penalties, interest and collection fees that have accumulated on that debt. Individuals and businesses have until Nov. 16 to settle their tax debt through several methods.
 
Department of Revenue spokeswoman Amanda Stanley tells the Journal Gazette that the contractor will send a second letter to clarify and apologize.
