New Tax Amnesty Is on the Way
Turkey's Draft Law on the Restructuring of Certain Receivables and Amending Certain Laws, known as the "tax amnesty of the century," was submitted to the Turkish Parliament on January 27, 2023. The draft law includes provisions for the restructuring of various public receivables, including tax receivables, tax base increase, and business records correction. Taxpayers who pay the entire original tax plus interest and penalties based on PPI monthly rates until the law's promulgation date will have the entire tax penalty and delay interest written off. The draft law also introduces a tax/tax base increase mechanism for income/corporate income tax, VAT, and certain withholding taxes.
