Facing tax penalties? A trusted advisor can help you reduce or possibly remove penalties with the right documentation.

If you forgot to file, filed incorrectly, failed to pay and/or failed to deposit and now owe additional penalties and interest, there's no need to panic. Oftentimes, if you provide appropriate supporting documentation for "reasonable cause," owed penalties can be reduced or removed.

Whether you are in a tax mess in the U.S. or abroad, navigating penalties can be complex. The right professional can not only help reduce or remove penalties through research, documentation and representation, but they can also help you do advanced tax planning to avoid the penalties altogether.

Our team understands international tax law and tax governing bodies, including the IRS. We'll work with you to complete the necessary tax forms, and when you find yourself in trouble, we'll generate reasonable cause statements to support your position and try to get penalties reduced and/or removed.
