Qualifying for a Penalty Abatement
The IRS isn’t going to waive penalties and significant tax debt for just anyone—there are some strict guidelines in order to qualify. To get approval, you will need to prove to the IRS that there is reasonable cause for filing or paying late. Things like natural disasters, medical expenses, and other emergencies are typically acceptable reasons. In some cases, you may qualify if the IRS made a mistake on your return, or delayed your return. The IRS may give you bad advice that leads to penalties; if you have this advice in writing, you may also use it to apply for an abatement.
