Remove IRS Penalties

IRS penalties add up fast. Get Help Now To Stop And Remove Penalties.

IRS penalties bloat your tax debt.  Penalty abatement (or removal) processes allow some or all of the penalties to be eliminated from your account.  In some cases, I may also be able to have some penalties partially eliminated if they are the result of an un-filed return or other problem with the original tax assessment. Each case is different. During your free initial consultation I  will identify the best alternative for you.

Enrolled Agent

Enrolled Agents are America's tax experts. They are required to take a comprehensive three part exam and take regular tax related education courses. Each year I exceed the required number of education courses to be certain I am up-to-date on all of the latest changes in tax laws and IRS procedures.

The most common types of penalties I encounter are:

  • Failure to File : This penalty is assessed when you fail to file a required business or personal tax return.  This penalty adds up quickly.  For individual returns this penalty accrues at 5% per month up to 5 months.  For business returns this rate can vary.  For example, on partnership returns (Form 1065) this penalty is $195 per month per partner for up to 12 months. Similarly, an S corporation would be charged $195 per shareholder per month up to 12 months.
  • Failure to Pay: If you failed to include the appropriate payment amount the IRS will add a penalty of .5%of the unpaid tax per month.  This penalty is not charged at the same time as a failure to file penalty is accruing.
  • Accuracy Penalty: The 20% accuracy penalty can be assessed in case of negligence or having a substantial underpayment of tax.
  • Underpayment of Estimated Tax: If you fail to have the appropriate amount of tax withheld from your paycheck or you fail to make estimated tax payments throughout the year you may receive this penalty.

I will help you deal with IRS penalties by first looking at the root of the penalty and then identifying opportunities to reduce or eliminate the penalty. If you usually pay your tax on time and have a one time mistake, then I can help you. If you were seriously ill (or have another good reason) and that led to your late filed taxes, then I can help you

Once you engage me to represent you with the IRS, then I will:

  • gather all of the relevant information from you
  • perform a detailed analysis of your IRS account transcripts
  • work with you to understand what special circumstances contributed to your penalties
  • build the best possible penalty abatement case for you
  • submit and defend your case with the IRS

Contact me today to get started. While it is possible to request penalty abatement on your own, we don’t recommend it for anyone owing a significant amount of penalties. Particularly if you owe for more than one tax year. Expert analysis is required to identify the best combination of strategies to eliminate the most penalties possible. I look at the complete picture including what circumstances in your life may have led to a penalty in one year or if a year is really your best candidate for a first time abatement.
