  • What is Penalty Abatement?

    Under certain circumstances, the IRS will waive penalties on your tax debt. For individuals and businesses, the most common is called a First Time Abate or IRS One Time Forgiveness. First Time Abate falls under the category of “administrative waiver.” From time to time, the tax authorities will announce other available administrative waivers in official communications.

  • What is a good reasonable cause for IRS Penalty Abatement?

    Riots, hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires are common reasons people can not afford a penalty. Personal circumstances, such as disability, death, or illness by you or your immediate family, can also sometimes qualify. Also, if you prove the system went down and delayed your payment, your late payment penalty can be erased.

  • How to request first-time penalty abatement

    Use Form 843 to request forgiveness of certain taxes, fees, interest, and penalties. However, Tax Relief Helpers will guide you on the supporting documentation and save you time if you are eligible.
