You've been screwing Phoenix over for years, not paying the city its rightful tax revenues on your business
profits sales. But you've been feeling guilty lately (and wondering if you're going to get caught).
Well, Phoenix's budget woes are your dream come true. With at least $5 million -- and probably way more -- in uncollected taxes, the city kicked off an amnesty program today for delinquent businesses. No matter how late the taxes are, business owners can file returns or pay amounts owed with the city in the next two months without any penalties.
By using honey instead of vinegar, the city hopes to rake in about $2 million it otherwise might have never seen.
Conservative business owners take note: Amnesty's not so bad when it benefits you, right?
