timely due to delays in DCBS processing Medicaid applications, Members can

The letter or email shall state the following:
Reason the tax payer is requesting the
Department of Revenue to waive the penalties.

to pay the tax.

tax and interest are statutory requirements and cannot be “waived” by the
Department of Revenue)

generate a “bill” immediately and/or provide documentation for issues about
penalties for a later date.
