Types Of Civil Tax Penalties

The law imposes many different types of tax penalties to help ensure that all taxpayers pay their taxes. Each penalty is calculated differently and is defined by different statutes and case law. At the Baker Law Firm, P.C., tax law has been a focus of our law firm since 1976. We work directly with the IRS in determining which penalties (if any) apply based on the facts involved. We have the in-depth knowledge necessary to guide you through a wide range of civil penalties;

  • Failure-to-file penalty
  • Failure-to-pay penalty
  • Accuracy-related penalty
  • Negligence penalty
  • Disregard penalty
  • Civil fraud penalty

If you underpay your taxes due to tax fraud rather than error, you could become involved in a criminal tax investigation. At the Baker Law Firm, P.C., we use extensive knowledge of tax fraud and criminal tax issues to answer your questions and address your concerns.
