The IRS Abolishes Penalties for 2019 and 2020, But?

The info offers penalty relief to taxpayers for some late-filed 2019 and 2020 tax returns and information returns, but only if the qualified returns are submitted on or by September 30, 2022.

Additionally, the penalty reduction does not apply to all types of returns. The IRS will automatically waive all applicable penalties specified in the Notice if the late returns are submitted before September 30, 2022.

The taxpayer won’t be required to submit a request for relief or a justification for the late filing. If the IRS has previously imposed penalties for those years, the Notice stipulates that they will be waived and that refunds will be sent.

To continue assisting taxpayers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the penalty relief under Notice 2022-36 is intended.

Additionally, the IRS should be able to redirect its resources following the difficulties it encountered while functioning during a pandemic to processing overdue tax returns and responding to taxpayer correspondence thanks to the penalty relief.

A tax expert should be contacted by taxpayers who have neglected to file 2019 and/or 2020 tax or information returns to see if they qualify for penalty reduction under Notice 2022-36.
