Customer Question

i am 85 years old, and I volunteered to help another senior citizen with her taxes. She filed estimated taxesl, but they produced only about one half of taxes due. I have looked at the 2210 form and penalties. It is a mess, and the corrections to the form ended in about 2007. Is there a simple way to offer the state a settlement amount they might accept?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. 2210 is only for calculating the penalty. If they didn't pay enough and cannot pay the rest by April 15 they can request installment agreement or in some situation offer in compromise. You cannot fix it by correcting 2210.
