IRS Makes Changes To Its First-Time Abate Penalty Waiver

This is an update to my previous article: IRS First-Time Abate Penalty Waiver and the Report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, published on October 26, 2012. 

The IRS has updated its First Time Abate program for penalty relief. This program allows taxpayers a one-time waiver the first time a failure to file, failure to pay or failure to deposit penalty is charged. The waiver is available for only one tax period. 

According to the update, in order to qualify for relief the taxpayer must have 

  1. Filed all tax returns
  2. Paid or arranged to pay all tax currently due (for example, the taxpayer has set up an installment agreement and is current with his or her payments).
