Amidst the COVID-19 aftermath, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has unveiled a heartwarming penalty relief plan that offers waivers totaling approximately $1 billion to 4.7 million individuals. The plan primarily provides relief to individuals who earn less than $400,000 annually. This action is a result of the automated tax bill reminders being discontinued, which waived the failure-to-pay penalties for the 2020 and 2021 tax years.

Taxpayers’ Anticipated Savings and IRS Relief Schedule

With an anticipated $206 in savings per return, taxpayers affected by this program stand to gain. Eligible individual accounts have been immediately adjusted by the IRS, and corporate accounts are expected to get adjustments by late December or early January 2024. Trusts, estates, and tax-exempt organizations are scheduled for relief between late February and early March 2024.

IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel emphasized how important it is to assist taxpayers, especially those who have unpaid bills and have not received much recent correspondence from the IRS.

This penalty reduction is in line with the IRS’s dedication to helping those in need by providing a variety of options for those who are finding it difficult to fulfill their payment obligations.
