Penalty Abatement

Reduce the Amount You Owe

Under specific circumstances, the IRS may remove some or all of the penalties and interest which have been accumulated from the tax debt you owe. This program, called penalty abatement, can help to substantially reduce the overall amount owed, giving you a better chance to settle. If the IRS has tacked on a large sum of interest or a long list of penalties to your debt, this solution may be ideal for you.

Circumstances that may lead to penalty abatement include the following:

  • Serious health conditions
  • Death of a family member
  • Natural disasters
  • Embezzlement or theft
  • Extended unemployment
  • Severe financial strain
