A taxpayer's petition for IRS penalty forgiveness must contain an explanation that pertains to the actual IRS penalty imposed with the corresponding dates. If a taxpayer's explanation is not clear enough, the dates do not correspond or the relief requested does not relate to the IRS penalty imposed, the IRS may deny your penalty petition.
- Reasonable Cause - A penalty abatement or penalty forgiveness may be requested by a taxpayer from the IRS as what is called "Reasonable Cause." There are many factors that may be called "Reasonable Cause," however, your definition of what is a "reasonable cause" and the IRS's definition may be completely different. Reasonable Cause is determined by the IRS based on all of the facts and all of the circumstances in each of the taxpayer's circumstances. Caution: Have an experienced IRS Tax Professional handle your Penalty Forgiveness petition.
- Ordinary Business Care and Prudence - The IRS may consider any reason for Penalty Forgiveness that establishes that a taxpayer exercised what is called "Ordinary Business Care and Prudence" causing the taxpayer to be unable to comply with the tax law.
- Death, Serious Illness or Unavoidable Absence - The IRS will consider death, serious illness or unavoidable absence of the taxpayer as reasonable cause for filing, paying or depositing late under "some" circumstances.
- Inability to Obtain Records - The taxpayer's penalty forgiveness petition to explain their inability to obtain necessary records may be constitute "Reasonable Cause" in some cases but not in others. Consult first with an experienced IRS relief professional.
- Statutory Exception - The Internal Revenue Code may provide an exception to an IRS penalty in some circumstances.
- Administrative Waiver - The IRS may clarify or interpret a provision in the Internal Revenue Code to provide administrative relief from a penalty that would otherwise be assessed.
- Undue Hardship - The IRS may consider the granting of an extension of time for paying a tax or deficiency because the taxpayer has an "undue hardship." The "undue hardship" must be more than a mere inconvenience.
- Erroneous Advice - The IRS will consider penalty forgiveness information related to erroneous written or oral advice received from the IRS erroneous advice given to a taxpayer by a tax professional when the IRS evaluates a request for penalty abatement or forgiveness of a penalty due to the taxpayer's reliance on that advice.
- Fire, Casualty, Natural Disaster or Other Disturbance - An IRS Penalty Abatement or Penalty Forgiveness may be requested by a taxpayer if there was a failure to timely comply with a requirement to file a tax return or to pay a back tax as the result of a fire, casualty, natural disaster or what is termed to be "other disturbance."
- IRS Error - NEWS FLASH, IRS MAKES MISTAKES - The IRS can make an error in computing or assessing a tax debt, crediting accounts, etc. An IRS error could also be caused by a computer application that caused the tax penalty to be assessed to a taxpayer.
