Community Resident:
The State of New York Department of Taxation and Finance currently has a program under way called 2010 Penalty and Interest Discount Program (PAID). This program allows a brief opportunity for New York taxpayers to clear up delinquent tax bills while taking advantage of substantial reduction in the penalties and interest. In order to realize any savings, eligible taxpayers must make all payments by the program’s expiration date, March 15, 2010.

Save up to 80% of the penalty and interest on your New York State tax debts.

The PAID (Penalty and Interest Discount) program gives taxpayers with older unpaid bills the chance to save up to 80% of the penalty and interest they owe. For information about this program, please visit www.nystax.gov.

To take advantage of the program’s savings, you must make all payments by the program’s expiration date,
