Penalty Abatement in Irvine, California

Tax Alliance - Penalty Abatement in Irvine, California

What is a Penalty Abatement?

With our help first-time penalty abatement (FTA) is possible and is the process by which the IRS agrees to eliminate penalties from your tax debt. That includes penalties for failure to file, failure to pay, and failure to deposit. The IRS might also remove interest related to those penalties.

Tax debt gathers penalties and interest much faster than most people realize. If your debt is a few years old, you might see your liability growing at a faster rate than you can pay. We can help reduce or eliminate these penalties if you are eligible for a penalty abatement.

Taxpayers can request relief from penalties. For the failure to file or pay a fine, taxpayers can ask the IRS to "abate" the penalties. Abatement is simply getting rid of the penalties after they are evaluated to the taxpayer. Failure to File (FTF) and Failure to Pay (FTP) fines generally require abatement because of the fact that the IRS analyzes these penalties in an electronic format (using its computer systems) when a return is filed, or a transaction is made on a balance due account.

Other fines typically require different techniques to request relief. For instance, the estimated tax penalty is generally not "abatable" by the taxpayers. Rather, taxpayers can ask for an exemption from the penalty when filing their income tax return (individuals use Form 2210).

Other penalties are recommended during IRS audits and inspections. These consist of accuracy or fraud penalties, and usually require the taxpayer to deal with IRS auditors or appeals officers before the evaluation of the penalty. Taxpayers can ask for abatement of return accuracy penalties after they are evaluated, however the abatement process may require using special IRS methods or taking the IRS to court. This can take years to settle.

You might get approved for relief from fines if you made an initiative to comply with the demands of the law, yet were unable to satisfy your tax responsibilities because of circumstances beyond your control.

If you received a notification, be sure to check that the information in your notification is correct. If you can fix an issue in your notification, a penalty might not apply.

Penalties qualified for fine relief consist of:

  • Failing to file an income tax return
  • Neglecting to pay on time
  • Neglecting to deposit certain taxes as demanded
  • Various other penalties as applicable
