    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are Examples of Reasonable Cause?

    There are several situations that can constitute reasonable cause for penalty abatement. Here are some of the most common reasons accepted by the IRS:

    • Records destroyed by flood, fire, or natural disaster
    • Inability to calculate the amount owed due to a lack of records
    • You were in Rehab or Prison
    • You were held in another country
    • A close family member (spouse, child, etc.) died
    • Health and Medical Issues
    • A civil disturbance such as a mail strike prevented you from making payment
    • You received bad information from a tax professional
    • Bad advice from an IRS representative
    How Much Can Be Abated?

    There is a monetary limit on the number of penalties that can be removed. The agency has not published a limit, but it appears to be up to $10,000 for telephonic hearings. Taxpayers can get an FTA over $10,000 but generally requires the request in writing by an attorney or enrolled agent.

    Do I Need to Be on An Installment Agreement to Qualify?

    Yes, in most cases the IRS will want to see “Good Faith” before granting the penalty abatement request. Meaning the taxpayer should be on some sort of payment arrangement to qualify for more penalty relief.

    Tax Network USA specializes in installment agreements and financial analyses. Our tax lawyers and enrolled agents can efficiently streamline the process, from payment agreements to penalty relief for our clients.

    Do I Have to File All Missing Tax Returns First Before Penalty Abatement?

    Yes, you must file all required returns or extensions (IRS considers you compliant).

    If you have outstanding paperwork, you will not qualify. Before applying, Tax Network USA will make sure that you have filed all requested tax returns and extensions with the IRS.
