Late Fees, Penalties and Interest Relief Lawyers

When you do not file or pay your taxes, whether they are federal or state, your tax debt can quickly grow out of control. Penalties, late fees and interest can add to your existing balance. For some specific types of taxes, the penalty can even double the amount you owe.


Before your tax debt becomes unmanageable and spirals out of your control, you need to seek advice from an experienced tax attorney. You want an attorney who understands local, state and federal tax laws inside and out.

Relief From Late Fees, Penalties and Interest

In some cases, it may be possible to avoid paying penalties for the tax debt you owe. Interest will always accrue for unpaid taxes. However, you may be able to obtain a penalty abatement to avoid paying penalties on what you owe.

In order to get an abatement, your nonpayment must have been for a reasonable cause. This can be a difficult standard to meet. Lack of awareness about the law is usually not reasonable cause for nonpayment. In order to prove your non-payment was well founded, you need an experienced legal advocate.

In addition to penalty abatements, we can also help you working with the taxing authority to secure an installment agreement or offer in compromise. We will leverage every resource and explore every avenue to help you resolve your tax debt issues.
