Penalty Abatement

Penalty Abatement


Owing taxes can be overwhelming, especially when it’s accompanied by excessive penalties and interest. The IRS sends threatening notices but doesn’t make it easy to work with them.

HOW DO PENALTIES WORK? And do I qualify to dispute them?

The IRS does not make it easy to understand how much your total penalties are or how to apply for a reduction of penalties . 

The most common types of IRS penalties are the failure to file (FTF) and failure to pay (FTP) penalty. Each of these penalties can be as much as 25% of the total tax you owe. This means up to half of your balance could be penalties and interest alone! There are two types of relief – First Time Abatement and Reasonable Cause. Knowing which to apply for will save a lot of time and headache.

It’s also important to know if you are within the timeframe to dispute your penalties. You have up to 3 years from the due date of the tax return or within 2 years of when you pay the tax due to dispute the penalties or claim a refund.  We will review your case to see if you qualify for penalty relief.
