Instructions and Help about Are Form 843 Representative

Hi my name is Nick Sutton and this is Marc Jernigan can we get penalties abated this may be one of the most common questions that we get the penalties are typically a large amount of money and most clients say something to the effect if it weren't for the penalties I owe the IRS I'd be able to pay them in full the IRS's policy is to use penalties as a deterrent for non-compliance whether it is non-compliance and filing or non-compliance and failure to pay or both the IRS does have the statutory authority to charge taxpayers with penalties if you're not compliant and you're not fully paid the IRS is charging you penalties and it won't be long into our conversation before you ask if I can get some of these penalties abated most penalties our system generated that is they are automatically asserted and sent out by computers they're not examined by a human eye if you want the IRS to evade a penalty you need to show a reasonable cause for your non-compliance whether it be fine or pain so the answer is it depends do you have reasonable costs the removal of penalties generally require the skills of a highly trained professional you're highly trained professional representative should be asking you things like what was the cause of you non compliance what caused your failure to pay the IRS the taxes and you know them your professional representative needs to understand this underlying cause so that they can explain this to the IRS everybody has a story but a story may not be a reasonable cause if you want to know what counts is a reasonable cause the IRS has a list on their website if you want to coach an articulate intelligent argument made on your behalf contact us immediately you
