Updated: December 15, 2004

  1. I am a member of the military. Can I apply for Tax Amnesty after the normal application period?
  2. I was traveling out of the country during amnesty. May I still apply?
  1. I am a member of the military. Can I apply for Tax Amnesty after the normal application period?

    Yes. California allows military personnel who were serving outside the United States as of March 31, 2005, no less than 180 days after returning to the U.S. to apply for amnesty. You may be allowed additional time if, during the application period (February 1, 2005 to March 31, 2005) you were:

    • In the military serving in a combat zone or qualified hazardous duty area.
    • In the military assigned outside the U.S., away from your normal duty station, in connection with a contingency operation.
    • A civilian serving in support of those military personnel in those areas or operations.
    • Hospitalized as a result of injury received while serving in those areas or operations.
  2. I was traveling out of the country during amnesty. May I still apply?

    No. Taxpayers who traveled out of the country during the amnesty period will not be granted an extension to apply and participate in the Amnesty Program.
