Response to IRS Penalty basics

A Response to IRS Penalty is a formal way to argue that the penalty levied against you is unjustified or too high. Penalties can be assessed for a number of reasons, and it can be a good idea to make sure the reason given to you is a valid one. You have rights, but you have to prove your point first. A Response to IRS Penalty helps you argue your case.

Use the Response to IRS Penalty document if:

  • You have been assessed an IRS penalty and would like the penalty reduced or eliminated.
  • You have cause to request a review of the penalty assessment.

A Response to IRS Penalty can help you request a reduction, a penalty waiver, or even a review. If you think a penalty is too high, don't just accept it. After all, there's a chance that the IRS is wrong. Tax penalties can be a real burden, and you certainly shouldn't pay if the penalty is unjustified or too high. When you make your case be sure you do it the right way; a professional correspondence can help you get better results. A Response to IRS Penalty can help you argue a penalty, reduce it, and maybe even get it eliminated.
