Hi from Just Answer. I'm PDtax. I'll assist.
You can "request that penalties be abated where there was no negligence or intentional disregard of the law" from RI taxpayer's rights, http://www.tax.ri.gov/help/rights.php.
Best is to ask for the abatement when you are ready to full pay. Expect that there will be interest due on the taxes, so you might be looking at a higher amount to close things out.
Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
