PROVIDENCE â€“ Rhode Islandâ€™s tax amnesty program generated more than $17 million following its conclusion last month, according to the Rhode Island Division of Taxation.
The amnesty provided Rhode Islanders with the opportunity to pay delinquent state taxes without penalties and with an interest rate reduction of 25 percent.
â€śWeâ€™re delighted that so many Rhode Island taxpayers took advantage of this opportunity to clean their slates and get a fresh start,â€ť David M. Sullivan, Rhode Island tax administrator, said in a statement.
