Eliminating Tax Penalties Due to Reasonable Cause

If you have made a mistake on your tax return that is later discovered by the IRS, you will be charged interest on the amount you owe. In addition, the IRS has the discretion to assess penalties requiring you to pay extra. But this doesn’t mean that you will have to pay these penalties. Working with a tax lawyer in Los Angeles or elsewhere can help in getting the penalties reduced or even dropped.

About one-third of all IRS penalties are abated and your odds of having your penalties dropped are much higher if you work with a tax attorney on your case. In order to convince the IRS to remove the penalties they have imposed, you need to convince them of special circumstances that lead to “reasonable cause” for you to not have made a correct filing initially.

This goes beyond just admitting that you made an honest mistake. Here are a few of the scenarios that the Law Offices Of Jeffrey B. Kahn, P.C.  know that the IRS will consider to be reasonable cause for an erroneous tax filing:

  • A death or serious illness in the family.
  • Incorrect advice given by an IRS agent in person or over the phone.
  • The loss of records because of a fire or natural disaster.
  • An error made by your tax preparer.

If you feel that you are being unfairly punished for a problem with a tax filing that was beyond your control, your best bet is to contact an IRS attorney from our firm who can review the facts in your case.

An experienced attorney with the Law Offices Of Jeffrey B. Kahn, P.C. may be able to help you get your tax penalties reduced or eliminated. Learn about the circumstances a tax attorney can use to plead your case with the IRS.
