Another IRS win, penalty abated $1,560.00

Here is an example of how the IRS is collecting tax in the form of penalties

Pass through entities are businesses that do not pay tax, the returns are reported to the owners.

These returns are generally due a month before the individual tax return is due.

Many partnerships are not aware of the timing differences, and The IRS had recently begun fining late penalties of $195.00 per month per partner.

If each partner filed his own return, and did not elect to be a partner, there would be no return, no pass through.  The return is an election that is intended to "simplify" the reporting process.

This particular business return was due March 15, the return was filed April 17, the fine was $1,560.00

There is a rule to abate these penalties, but only if certain conditions are met.
