Penalty Abatement

Penalty Abatement Attorney in Rancho Cucamonga

Reducing IRS Fines in Inland Empire and San Bernardino County

If you’re enduring financial hardship, you may have fallen behind on your taxes. Failing to pay your taxes on time, in their full amount, or failing to file at all can cause the IRS to hit you with penalties when you’re already down on your luck. Depending upon what you owe and other circumstances, penalties can make it seem like there’s no way to end to your tax debt.

Take a breath, because there’s a way to fight or reduce IRS penalties, and The Blue Law Group can help you do it. With our help, you can benefit from one of three ways to whittle down your responsibility for tax penalties.

We can help you mitigate your tax penalties through:

  • A “reasonable cause” waiver
  • First-Time Penalty Abatement Waivers
  • Statutory Exceptions

The Blue Law Group can help you get the most out of fighting IRS penalties against you. Benefit from a free consultation with us so you can learn more about how we can help your situation.

Understanding Reasonable Cause Waivers for Tax Relief

The IRS can waive penalties that were the result of certain circumstances out of your control. If you failed to file or pay your taxes because of a natural disaster, death, incapacitation, or other reasonable causes, you may qualify for a waiver of the penalty. Of course, if you have died or are incapacitated, a trustee of your estate or loved one will be tasked with applying for this waiver.

The Blue Law Group can help you establish an argument that you qualify for this waiver. In addition to the obvious reasons you wouldn’t be able to file on time, we can help you argue that you attempted to file with care and prudence but were unable due to a circumstance beyond your control.

Unfortunately, however, lacking funds to pay your tax liability or forgetting to file are not generally accepted circumstances.

First-Time Penalty Abatement: Your Path to Tax Forgiveness

Administrative relief from a penalty may be granted if this is your first time failing to file, pay, or deposit your taxes when they’re due. If you need help determining any of the information below, reach out to The Blue Law Group.

This penalty waiver applies when the following have occurred:

  • You have no penalties (or weren’t required to file a return) for three tax years before the year you got a penalty.
  • You’ve filed the currently required forms or have a pending extension to file.
  • You’ve paid or made arrangements to pay any due taxes.

Seek Statutory Exceptions with The Blue Law Group

You may qualify for statutory relief from a penalty if it resulted from following written instructions from a representative of the IRS. Because you’ll need solid proof that something like this happened, our penalty abatement attorney in Rancho Cucamonga can help you arrange everything you’ll need to make your case.

The IRS will need to review the following from you:

  • Your request, in writing, for the IRS’ advice
  • The incorrect written advice you received from the IRS
  • A report of tax adjustments (if any) identifying the penalty or addition to your tax liability

Your attorney can help you track down and organize these important elements that you’ll need to get a statutory exception to a tax penalty.
