Tax form Civil Penalty is not an actual form. It is a penalty that has been assessed against someone in relation to misaction regarding another form or responsibility.

I personally see this most often as a result of unpaid employment taxes form 941. The individuals can be held personally responsible for a portion of the unpaid business tax. It is personally assessed as a civil penalty. It also can be the result of fraudulent filing of any return, failure to file returns such a ls w2s or 1099s or filing returns that contain information that does not match associated returns.
If you want to know specifically what it is from, contact the IRS at 800 - 829 - 1040. Civil Penalties can be assessed against individuals or businesses.
