tax penalty abatement

A tax abatement is a temporary reduction or elimination of property taxes. It applies to real estate and, sometimes, the personal property that a local government or district taxes. Tax reductions only apply to eligible pieces of property, including new and renovated homes and commercial buildings.

The IRS and many states realize that there are situations that arise that prevent taxpayers from getting into full compliance with tax laws. These penalties can be removed if the taxpayer can prove to the IRS or State taxing authority that they did have a valid excuse called “reasonable cause” for not being compliant with tax regulations.

How Our Tax Penalty Abatement Service Works

With all of our clients who owe money in taxes, we determine if they are likely candidates to qualify for tax reductions. This is a very common tax filing, and we have seen various reasons the taxing authorities have accepted as “reasonable cause.”  As part of the routine investigation done by our staff of attorneys and EAs, we will know why you did not comply with the tax code. As a result, we can tell you if you have “reasonable cause” or valid circumstances that inhibited you from complying with IRS and State tax laws. If you have reasonable cause, we will submit the appropriate paperwork to the taxing authorities to request the removal of tax penalties. Getting a response from taxation authorities regarding penalty abatement can take some time, but it is generally worth the wait.

Clean Slate Tax saved me over $100,000! Not only that, they released a levy on my bank account. This company was worth every penny! I would suggest using them. Their professionalism, personal touch, availability and communication were remarkable. USE THEM!

Joe is the absolute BEST!! He is very knowledgeable, helpful, compassionate, friendly, and very easy to talk to. Everyone at Clean Slate that I talked to was so understanding and nice. They made me feel comfortable sharing very private financial issues that I have a hard time talking about. They were very patient with me paying them for their services. I could not have asked for a better company! (...)

From the first contact with Clean Slate to my final day EVERYTHING was transparent, professional and incredibly friendly, straight forward and honest.
No false promises and they kept us in the loop all the time. They promised no more than they could deliver and delivered everything they set out to do.
A pay garnishment and HUGE tax burden was lifted and settled, as they had originally planned.

I’m sure that the good folks at Clean Slate had heard it before....but for me, it was was an accident. That I didn’t file tax returns for 5 years. 2 family members, the 2 I loved the most, and the longest, passed within a year of each other, and it broke me. For the next 4 years. Every time I sat to do my returns, my mind went dead. And along the way, I had been hearing so many ads, “Got a tax problem? Call us”(...)
