Discuss Your Options with a Skilled Oklahoma Tax Attorney
Sometimes it's not the amount of unpaid taxes that causes the inability to pay, but the penalties and interest that get tacked on after non-payment. A penalty abatement can help wipe out some of these extra costs and lower the amount of money due to the IRS. With decades of experience, Travis W. Watkins Tax Resolution & Accounting Firm can walk you through your options and help you make the right decision for your situation.

Am I Qualified for a First-Time Penalty Abatement?
If you can show that you have a good reason for the IRS to consider waiving or reducing penalty fees, you might be able to obtain penalty abatement.
You may qualify you for relief if you have:
- Not previously had to file a return or if you have no penalties for at least three tax years prior to this current penalty
- Filed all current returns or have applied for an extension of time to file these returns
- Arranged to pay or have paid any tax dues
In addition, if you were unable to pay on time due to circumstances that you couldn't control, such as unemployment, a family illness or death, imprisonment, or a natural disaster, you may be able to get the IRS to consider waiving the penalties.
