Penalty & Interest Abatement

Reduce your tax debt and stop accumulating interest TODAY with help from Lothamer Tax Resolution.

Get Help Requesting an IRS Penalty Abatement

The IRS and state tax agencies impose penalties in an attempt to persuade people to file and pay their taxes on time. But sometimes, serious circumstances force even the most well-intentioned taxpayers to get behind—in fact, it’s much more common than you might think. Dealing with the penalties and interest while juggling the situation that put you behind in the first place is tough—but at Lothamer, we’re here to help you get tax relief while you focus on what matters.

Let us help compose a request for Penalty Abatement detailing all the events that were going on in your life at the time your penalties began accumulating. We can help you show that you had a reasonable cause for getting behind on your taxes. If granted, a Penalty Abatement can remove the penalties accrued, and potentially even get you a refund for any past penalties and interest on penalties that you’ve already paid.

Don’t let IRS penalties continue to snowball due to circumstances outside your control. Stop collections TODAY with Lothamer.

What is Reasonable Cause for IRS Penalty Abatement?

To qualify for Penalty Abatement, we’ll need to prove that you had a reasonable cause for getting behind on your taxes. According to the IRS, valid reasons for failing to file or not paying your debt on time can include:

  • First Time Penalty Abatement for having a clean record for three prior years
  • Fires, hurricanes, and other natural disasters
  • An inability to get your records (for example, someone else has your records )
  • A death or serious illness in your immediate family
  • Technical issues that interfere with timely e-Filing or payment

Penalty abatement is another option available to reduce what you owe, especially when you don’t qualify for an Offer in Compromise. At Lothamer, we’ll examine every option to reduce your overall tax debt, provide real relief, and help you take your life back.
