IRS Offers Penalty Relief for 5 Million Tax Returns

IRS Offers Penalty Relief for 5 Million Tax Returns. Collection Notices to Resume in 2024.

IRS Penalty Relief 2024

The IRS has introduced penalty relief measures for approximately 4.7 million individuals, businesses, and tax-exempt organizations who missed automated collection reminder notices during the pandemic. This relief, totaling about $1 billion, mainly benefits those with incomes under $400,000.

IRS Penalty Relief for 5 Million Tax Returns:

Due to the pandemic, automated reminder notices for overdue tax bills were suspended in February 2022. However, the failure-to-pay penalty continued for those who didn’t fully pay their bills after the initial notice.

To help affected taxpayers, the IRS will send a special reminder letter next month, detailing their liability, payment options, and potential penalty relief. Taxpayers unable to pay the full balance should visit IRS.gov/payments for bill resolution.

The IRS is also waiving failure-to-pay penalties for eligible taxpayers for tax years 2020 and 2021. About 5 million tax returns, totaling $1 billion in savings, qualify. Relief applies automatically to those with assessed tax amounts under $100,000 until April 1, 2024.

Taxpayers ineligible for automatic relief can explore other penalty relief options on IRS.gov/penaltyrelief, such as reasonable cause criteria or the First-Time Abate program.

The IRS will resume collection notices in 2024 for taxpayers with prior-year tax debts, except those with multi-year debt. Taxpayers receiving these notices should review them carefully and use IRS.gov resources for tax debt assistance.

Note that failure-to-file and failure-to-pay penalties, plus interest charges, may apply to those not filing or paying taxes on time, with varying penalties depending on circumstances.

For detailed information, dates, and eligibility criteria, consult IRS Notice 2024-7 and visit IRS.gov.
