Tax Penalty Relief And Legal Options

When businesses or individuals underreport, underpay or fail to pay their taxes, the IRS will assess civil penalties. These penalties can dramatically increase the amount you owe to the IRS. The IRS and other taxing authorities will assert penalties against taxpayers under a number of circumstances, including:

  • Failing to file returns
  • Failure to pay the full amount of the tax due
  • Failure to pay for trust fund taxes
  • Failure to pay estimated tax payments

In cases involving an intentional habitual failure to report income, the government may file criminal charges.
