IRS Penalty Abatement
If you file your tax return late, the IRS will charge you a late filing penalty which is generally 5% per month for each month that you are late. This penalty can total up to 25% of the total amount due. In addition, the IRS will charge interest at the rate of .5% per month, up to 25% of the total unpaid amount that is due. Because of this, non-payment of back taxes will result in IRS penalties and interest that will compound over the years substantially increasing your tax debt. This can lead to an IRS levy on your bank account, garnishment of wages, IRS lien on your property, or even an asset seizure.
Our CPA Firm can help you abate or eliminate IRS penalties either fully or partially depending on your specific case. We will support your penalty abatement request with facts, law, documentation and/or affidavits to improve your chances of eliminating or reducing IRS penalties. Reasonable cause factors the IRS will consider include, but are not limited to, death, divorce, disaster, destruction of records, medical problems, bad professional advice, reliance upon erroneous IRS advise, as well as numerous other issues. If your penalty abatement request is approved by the IRS, your tax debt will be reduced by the penalties eliminated plus any interest that accumulated over time on the penalty portion of the tax debt.
