There are two scenarios in which an individual may receive an IRS penalty; they are either late in paying their taxes or they file their tax return after the deadline. In case of late filing of your tax returns, the defaulter usually pays 5 percent of the tax amount every month, if the delay is less than 60 days. However, if they are late by more than that, they pay either a maximum of 100 dollars or 100 percent of the amount owed. In certain scenarios the defaulter can be exempted, some examples of which, we will discuss in this blog post. Read on.

File Destruction in Natural Calamities

Natural calamity such as flood, storm, cyclone can inadvertently destroy the documents you need to file your return or pay your due. This casualty caused by any unforeseen event will be taken into consideration by the IRS team.

Demise of the Taxpayer or a Family Member

The IRS regards the death of a family member as a permissible reason for one for not filing their income tax return or paying the income tax owed. If this situation has occurred in your life too, you need to have supporting documents to get exempted from IRS penalty. The IRS conducts an inspection to check the authenticity of the situation.

Riot or Violence

A riot or any major act of violence is usually highlighted by mainstream and online media outlets. If a taxpayer could not pay their taxes or file a tax return due to such a scenario, the IRS may withdraw the penalty. If, however, the claim is found to be fake, they can take strict actions against the claimant.

First-Time Abatement

A taxpayer gets this privilege if they are filing for a penalty abatement for the first time. To qualify for this exemption, one needs to have a clean history of filing return and paying taxes on time. There should not be any evidence of any IRS penalties in the past.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
