IRS: Partial Penalty Relief Still Available for 2019 and 2020 Returns, But it Depends…
Amidst the upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic, some U.S. taxpayers were unable to file their 2019 or 2020 income tax returns within the IRS’ filing deadlines The Internal Revenue Service, in a show of understanding, fully waived penalties for individual taxpayers and businesses who filed certain late returns by September 30, 2022. Although the deadline has recently passed — and the IRS is not extending it — taxpayers who file late 2019 or 2020 returns may nonetheless be eligible for partial penalty relief, according to the IRS. Provisional grace also applies to taxpayers filing certain international information returns, including Form 3520, Annual Return To Report Transactions With Foreign Trusts and Receipt of Certain Foreign Gifts; Form 3520-A, Annual Information Return of Foreign Trust With a U.S. Owner (Under section 6048(b)).

Announced in June, the Joint Strategic Emerging Issues Team, or JSEIT, combines expertise from units across the agency, including Criminal Investigation, Tax Exempt/Government Entities, Large Business & International, and Small Business/ Self Employed.
JSEIT’s goal is to act before a tax scheme becomes a widespread issue.

Any transactions that have already been identified as abusive by the IRS will not be in focus.
