The Courier Press has a column by Andrea Neal on the Tax Amnesty. She says that, while it may bring in extra revenue in the short term, it has the potential for encouraging more tax cheats in the future if citizens think there may be another amnesty at some point. In several of the states where tax amnesty was declared as “one time only,” there were actually subsequent amnesties. So, post-amnesty enforcement needs to be stepped up and the legislature should probably earmark some of the revenues from the amnesty for stepped up enforcement in the future.
