“Virginia offering amnesty program for delinquent taxes”

Terry Barrett, Keiter Tax Senior Manager and Leader in Keiter's State and Local Tax team, shared her insights on the Virginia Tax Amnesty Program in the Richmond Times Dispatch article, "Virginia offering amnesty program for delinquent taxes."
