Penalty Abatement

Remove Penalites And Interest From Your Tax Debt

The IRS will remove all or part of your penalties and interest from your tax liability if you qualify for penalty abatement. The IRS will often remove the penalties, and keep the interest, however because the penalties can make up to 25% of your tax debt, a penalty abatement can provide a large amount of tax relief.
How Do I qualify For Penalty Abatement?
The IRS has no set rules or limits for penalty abatements, instead they rely on each individual’s financial facts and circumstances on a case by case basis. The IRS requires that the individual or business entity prove that they handled their taxes correctly to the best of their ability, and that they have a reasonable cause for not filing or paying the debt in time. Here are some examples of reasonable cause which may qualify a taxpayer for IRS penalty abatement or reduction.
  1. Death of a family member, or close friend
  2. Incorrect advice from a licensed tax professional, such as a CPA whom you hired to do your taxes, and filed those in error and you were unaware.
  3. Bad or wrong advice received from the IRS, in correspondence, by phone, or in person.
  4. A taxpayer’s financial documentation was destroyed or unreachable for circumstances out of their control such as a fire, or natural disaster.
  5. The taxpayer was absent for a reason outside of their control, such as being incarcerated, kidnapped, or other unavoidable circumstances.
Getting a penalty abatement from the IRS can be difficult, and requires that you back all reasonable causes with enough evidence to convince them.
