Penalty Abatement

CompromiseBesides the Offer in Compromise, there is another, very effective program for reduction of an outstanding tax debt. If there were circumstances beyond your control that prevented you from paying your tax debt and led to delinquency, we can challenge the penalties and interest that have built up and negotiate them down.
Relief from penalties falls into four separate categories. They are:

  • Reasonable Cause
    Mistake made by the taxpayer, ignorance of law, death, serious illness, unavoidable absence.
  • Statutory Exceptions
    Simple or complex legislative tax code changes.
  • Administrative Waivers
    Undue hardship, fire, flood, natural disaster, bad legal/tax advice.
  • Correction of Service Error
    Mistake made by the IRS. Source IRS.

If applied for correctly and effectively, results are substantial; savings are usually thousands of dollars for the average taxpayer.
