This session reviews abatement options for common penalties, including, but not limited to, the failure-to-file penalty, the failure-to-pay penalty, and accuracy-related penalties. Strategies covered include First Time Abate, reasonable cause, statutory exceptions, and §6751(b), a relatively new penalty abatement strategy. The intersection of statutes of limitations and penalty abatement is also discussed.
