Penalty Abatement in Los Angeles, CA

What Is a Penalty Abatement?

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

Tax debt collects penalties and interest much faster than many people realize. If your debt is a few years old, you might see your liability increasing at a faster rate than you can pay. We can help reduce or remove 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 just removing the penalties after they are assessed to the taxpayer. Failure to File (FTF) and Failure to Pay (FTP) fines generally require abatement because of the fact that the IRS evaluates these penalties in an electronic format (using its computer systems) when a return is submitted, or a transaction is made on a balance due account.

Other fines usually require different methods to request relief. For instance, the estimated tax penalty is usually not "abatable" by the taxpayers. Rather, taxpayers can request an exclusion from the penalty when submitting their tax return (individuals use Form 2210).

Other penalties are suggested during IRS audits and evaluations. These consist of accuracy or fraud penalties, and typically require the taxpayer to deal with IRS auditors or appeals officers prior to the evaluation of the penalty. Taxpayers can ask for abatement of return accuracy penalties after they are assessed, however the abatement process might require using special IRS methods or taking the IRS to court. This can take years to resolve.

You may get approved for relief from fines if you made an effort to comply with the demands of the law, but were unable to fulfill your tax responsibilities due to circumstances beyond your control.

If you received a notice, make sure to check that the information in your notification is correct. If you can fix a problem in your notification, a penalty might not apply.

Penalties eligible for fine relief consist of:

  • Failing to file a tax return
  • Neglecting to pay on time
  • Neglecting to deposit specific taxes as required
  • Various other penalties as applicable
