How to Remove a Civil Penalty

While it seems like the IRS has a penalty attached to another penalty for every situation, they also offer a few different options for penalty relief that we can help guide you through.

Can IRS Civil Penalties be Waived?

Taxpayers who are assessed Failure To File and/or Failure To Pay penalties can request penalty abatement. The two most common options for abatement are:

  1. First Time Penalty Abatement (FTA)
  2. Reasonable Cause Penalty Relief

Other penalties, such as accuracy and fraud, require audits and other IRS procedures to determine abatement.

Help with Back Taxes

Penalties and interest sometimes add up to such exorbitant amounts that they are impossible for the common taxpayer to pay off. However, our experienced tax attorneys can negotiate for complete penalty abatement or at least reduce the amount owed.
