IRPAC Issues Annual Report - Recommendations Include Improving the Penalty Abatement Process

The IRS' federal advisory committee, known as the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee (IRPAC), has issued its 2015 report identifying several areas in need of improvement including a revision of certain forms, improvements to the IRS use of FAQs and improvements in the penalty abatement process for first time abatement requests and reasonable cause abatement requests. IRPAC noted that despite evidence that requests were submitted showing events beyond the taxpayer's control which resulted in taxpayer errors, the denial of penalty relief is commonly denied initially causing the taxpayer to spend additional time and money appealing the determination.
