Ask A CPA - Late Filing

Will The IRS Ever Waive Penalties ?

The IRS will waive penalties when allowed by law if you can show that you acted reasonably and in good faith or relied on the incorrect advice of an IRS employee. The IRS will also waive interest that is the result of certain errors or delays caused by an IRS employee.
