What is IRS Penalty Abatement?

Penalty abatement is a process that allows taxpayers to request relief from IRS penalties. The IRS considers penalty abatement on a case-by-case basis.

To be eligible for penalty abatement, you must demonstrate reasonable cause or show that you acted in good faith. Examples of reasonable cause include natural disasters, serious illness or injury, death in the family, or unavoidable absence. Acting in good faith means that you made an honest effort to comply with the tax laws, but still encountered difficulties.

The goal of penalty abatement is to provide a second chance and help you overcome financial setbacks caused by penalties.

First-Time Penalty Abatement

There are different types of penalty abatement available, depending on the circumstances and the specific penalties imposed. One of the most common types of penalty relief is first-time penalty abatement. If you’ve been hit with a failure-to-file or failure-to-pay penalty, you may be eligible for this type of relief if you:

  • Filed all required tax returns or requested an extension
  • Paid all taxes due or made payment arrangements with the IRS
  • Have a good record with the IRS – no penalties for the prior three (3) years

It’s important to note that there is a time limit on requesting penalty abatement. If you want to reduce or remove your tax penalties, take action as soon as possible!
