Penalties and Fines

Serving Clients Throughout Minnesota and Western Wisconsin

Penalties, interest and fines are often an unfortunate reality for taxpayers facing tax liabilities for tax evasion, late payment, unreported income or claiming unauthorized tax deductions and credits. If you have been notified of heavy penalties or fines that will increase your total tax liability, it may help to know that federal and state tax collection authorities are often more interested in collecting the taxes due, than the fines and penalties. It is often possible to reduce or eliminate the penalties and fines by working out an acceptable offer in compromise.

If you are a resident of Minnesota or Western Wisconsin and are facing a significant fine for taxes owed over $20,000 to the IRS or Minnesota Department of Revenue, arrange a consultation with a tax law attorney at Pridgeon & Zoss, PLLC. Our lawyers have applied their entire professional careers to the practice of tax law, combining years IRS tax law experience, before opening a tax law firm to help taxpayers who are facing significant tax problems at the state or federal level.

“In our experience, tax authorities are primarily interested in making sure you meet your tax obligations. We have earned the respect of the people at the Minnesota IRS offices and at the Minnesota Department of Revenue. When we propose a reasonable solution to reduce or eliminate a penalty or fine, they trust that it is in the best interest of all parties.” – Attorneys Mark Pridgeon and Dave Zoss
