Spanish term or phrase: blanqueo impositivo
El blanqueo impositivo (que muy probablemente resulte exitoso) podría contribuir de manera favorable a una recuperación a través de diversos canales.

The tax amnesty plan (which could very likely be successful), could contribute to a recovery through different channels.

No sólo aumentará la capacidad de financiamiento de las compañías, en particular en algunos sectores como el de la construcción y el agro, sino también podría contribuir al financiamiento del Gobierno (por el pago de la multa del blanqueo con bonos y por la mayor demanda de títulos públicos exentos impositivamente para la nueva riqueza declarada).

It will not only increase companies' financing capacity, especially in some sectors such as construction and agriculture, but it could also contribute to Government financing (through payment of the tax amnesty plan fine with bonds and through an increased demand of tax-free securities for the newly declared wealth).

Encontré 'whitewashing' en publicaciones del Buenos Aires Herald y otras publicaciones argentinas traducidas al inglés, pero no me parece un término económico... "Laundering" se usa para "money laundering", con sentido negativo. "Tax amnesty plan" tiene el mismo sentido que "blanqueo impositivo" (creo)... ¿Alguna otra sugerencia?

Reference information:
An "guns amnesty" or "knife amnesty" means people can hand in weapons they should not have without being prosecuted for having them.
A tax amnesty would be a similar intiative, to try to coax delinquents back into the fold.

When they announced a tax amnesty for big-time tax dodgers here in Spain a couple of years ago, I asked if the 3 years' back payments on VAT being demanded (because I hadn't kept invoices for every sodding item I'd ever bought or paid for) would come under the scheme, the people in the tax office laughed out loud. "That's only for the rich" they told me...
Am still not (expletive) amused...
