OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- This Friday is the deadline for the Oklahoma Tax Commission's Clean Slate '08 program.

Under the program, taxpayers who file past due returns and pay their obligations from taxes due prior to January 1, 2008, will have all penalty, interest and fees waived.

The penalty on their original obligation will double after November 14, 2008 for those who fail to take advantage of this program.

"We've had an overwhelming response from the taxpayers to the Clean Slate '08 program," said Paula Ross, Tax Commission spokesperson. "Thousands of taxpayers have been able to file and bring their accounts current with our agency."

Payments and the reports associated with the payment must be postmarked by November 14 and can be sent to P.O. Box 269059, Oklahoma City, OK 73126-9059.
