First-time penalty abatement waiver
Although missing the tax deadline is a very serious matter, the IRS can remove penalties from your tax liability if you made this mistake. The IRS issues first-time penalty abatement (FTA) waivers that grant relief for failure-to-file, failure-to-pay, and failure-to-deposit penalties.
However, delinquent taxpayers must meet the following criteria to qualify for an FTA:
- No tax penalties for the past three years
- All required returns or valid extensions have been filed
- Paid or made payment arrangements for outstanding debt
The best strategy for obtaining an FTA waiver is to have a knowledgeable lawyer write to the IRS on your behalf to ensure all the relevant information is included.
