While failure to file and pay is the most common penalties, the IRS may hit you with countless other penalties. These penalties will continue to accrue until the taxpayer has paid their balance in full. These are a few of the most commonly assessed IRS penalties:

1) Failure To File Penalty: A penalty designated for individuals who fail to file their tax returns by the due date. This penalty can total up to 25% of the original amount of taxes owed.

2) Failure To Pay Penalty: A penalty designated for individuals who fail to pay the full amount of taxes owed (as reported on their annual return) by the due date.

3) Failure To Pay Estimated Tax: a penalty designated to individuals who fail to make the proper quarterly estimated tax deposit payments.

4) Dishonored Check: a penalty designated to individuals whose payments are not honored by their bank.

What Is IRS Penalty Abatement?

Penalty abatement refers to the termination or reduction of the penalties and the interest on said penalties. This program is only available to taxpayers with penalties such as failure to file, failure to pay and failure to deposit penalties. Under the IRS' discretion, certain other penalties may also qualify for relief. Additionally, individuals must meet the IRS' requirements for the penalty abatement program. Individuals seeking relief from the burdens of IRS penalties should procure help from a qualified tax professional when requesting penalty abatement.

How Can I Have My IRS Penalties Waived?

To qualify for the penalty abatement program, individuals must meet the IRS' requirements. The primary requirement for penalty abatement is taxpayer compliance. Taxpayers should be up to date with filing and paying their taxes for at least three years before applying for penalty abatement. Additionally, the applicant must also have "reasonable cause" for failure to meet tax obligations. Listed below are a few examples of reasonable cause:

  • - Illness, injury, or death
  • - Natural disasters (i.e. fires, floods, earthquakes, etc.)
  • - Inability to obtain old tax documents
  • - Errors on tax documents
  • - Wrongful advice from a tax professional

The IRS considers the causes mentioned above and many others when determining if an individual qualifies for the penalty abatement program. To ensure optimal results, taxpayers should seek help from an experienced tax professional. The tax code and processes can be confusing to the average taxpayer. Therefore, it is in your best interest to look to a tax expert who has experience negotiating with the IRS.
