Megan C :

Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Megan C :

How are you today?

Customer:

fine BH

Megan C :

That's good

Megan C :

Yes, you can write the IRS and the NYS tax department and ask for an abatement of penalties

Megan C :

IS this your first time being late?

Customer:

no

Megan C :

Well, unfortunately you would not qualify for the first time penalty abatement, but all you need to do is write a letter requesting an abatement of penalties

Customer:

for what reason ?

Megan C :

Is there any particular reason you were late?

Megan C :

Did something happen?

Customer:

paid too little with the extension because i did not know the tax will be more

Megan C :

But nothing happened, like your records were lost, someone was sick, etc

Megan C :

If nothing happened, and you are just late, and you have been late before, then they will not abate the penalties.

Customer:

i didn't have the records from my clients

Megan C :

Unfortunately, that would not be a reason to abate penalties.

Customer:

my child have cancer and i was bz with him?

Megan C :

You could use that as a reason.

Megan C :

How is the depreciation for


1)Plywood Thick Top 24x96x30 Folding Table $163


2)Benches 12x96x18 Plastic top $109


3) Friedrich $36,000 BTU AC $1,720


4) Stainless work table $371.70


5)Cutting Board ¾ thick 30x72 $23

Thanks for your follow up. I see that your items cost under $500. You do not need to depreciate the plywood, benches, stainless work table, and cutting board. However, if you did depreciate these items they would be 7 year property.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive so that I may receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
