Voluntary Disclosure Agreement

A Voluntary Disclosure Agreement is a process in which a company comes clean about not collecting or paying taxes when they should have (usually sales tax and corporate income tax). This helps to minimize penalties and the look-back period for paying back taxes. Without it, the tax agency will come after the company for the full amount and penalties. In fact, many States will not accept an VDA if they notify you first (e.g. sending a tax questionnaire).
