As a business or individual taxpayer, you may receive a penalty on top of what you owe to the IRS. Fortunately, the IRS has also created the FTA – first-time penalty abatement administrative waiver. It allows compliant taxpayers to request abatement or remove certain penalties. At Tax Defense Partners, we are experienced in penalty abatement. Since our inception, we have successfully eliminated IRS penalties for a wide variety of clients.
A penalty abatement is a tax problem resolution designed to fully eliminate or lessen the degree of IRS penalties. The IRS penalties can roll out penalties that range from imprisonment to civil fines. Those fines can be over 25 percent of the total owed to the IRS.
If you have tried applying for an offer in compromise and it was rejected, penalty abatement is the next best tax problem resolution to consider. You can use it when negotiating repayment terms or an installment agreement.
At Tax Defense Partners, we analyze your life circumstances to determine whether the IRS can forgive your penalties. Some of the circumstances that can qualify you for exemption include:
You need to keep in mind that a “just because” argument will not work.
Tax Defense Partners has the professional skill and experience to resolve your tax debt. Our tax professionals challenge every part of your debt, i.e. penalties, interest, tax balances, and principal. We ensure everything on your account is valid.
We can evaluate and explain any qualifying conditions that fit IRS justifications for penalty abatement. Once we have confirmed that the tax—originally assessed by the IRS—is the lowest amount allowed by law, our team works tirelessly to reduce or eliminate our clients’ tax debts.
