The Internal Revenue Service says it is extending the deadline for international tax cheats to come clean and take advantage of reduced penalties because of the possible effects of Hurricane Irene.
The program, announced in February, was to end Wednesday. The IRS said Friday it will extend the deadline to Sept. 9 because of the massive hurricane working its way up the East Coast.
The program allows international tax evaders who come clean to avoid jail and pay reduced fines. The offer is similar to one the IRS made in 2009 that netted 15,000 tax evaders.
Under the program, people must pay back taxes, interest and reduced penalties.
