The Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) encourages businesses and individuals that are not in compliance with District tax laws to voluntarily come forward to bring their accounts into compliance through the Voluntary Disclosure Program. Voluntary Disclosure Program offers may be submitted anonymously or under the taxpayer's identity. OTR will waive civil penalties if the tax and interest is paid in full.
Note: If a taxpayer has been contacted by OTR or its representatives (i.e. Multistate Tax Commission or MBIA MuniServices), the taxpayer is not eligible for the Voluntary Disclosure Program.
The Audit Division of OTR's Compliance Administration administers the Voluntary Disclosure Program. A voluntary disclosure offer may be submitted to any tax auditor at OTR, but approval authority is vested in the Audit Division Chief, Assistant Audit Division Chief, or the Review and Conference Supervisory Tax Auditor.
Voluntary disclosure offers should be submitted to the following address:
