Amador Accounting Answers Late Filing Questions

By: Michigan SEO Group
BELLEVILLE, Mich. - May 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Belleville-based Amador Accounting has answers for common questions about filing 2020 taxes after the May 17, 2021 deadline.

The personal income tax filing deadline for filing year 2020 was extended until May 17 this year, but the IRS recognizes that there are legitimate circumstances that can make it difficult or impossible to file on time.

While penalties are usually charged for late filing, the IRS may choose to waive the penalty if the taxpayer proves extenuating circumstances prevented them from filing on time.

Examples of acceptable reasons might include:
  • A natural or personal disaster (a home fire, for example).
  • Taxpayer attempts but is unable to obtain all the records needed for filing.
  • The taxpayer or a family member died, had a serious illness or unexpected absence, or was incapacitated in some other way.
Taxpayers may be required to provide documentation supporting their request to have late filing penalties waived, proving:
  • The event that prevented filing on time.
  • Why it affected their ability to file.
  • What steps they took to attempt to file.
Acceptable documentation might include hospital records, court records, a letter from a doctor, or documentation proving a natural disaster or event personally affected the taxpayer's ability to file.

Amador Accounting is available to answer questions and guide taxpayers through the process.
