You may wish to retain another but you can request the penalty be abated.
You said your LLC was late in filing. If this was a single member LLC and your income was reported on Schedule C you can call the IRS use the number listed on the notice you received) and request they abate the penalty based on either "first time" providing you have not been late before or because you relied on your professional.
Tax professionals can also request abatement using IRS e-services so if your accountant will not make themselves available to you another can still intercede on your behalf.
I sincerely ***** ***** information is helpful.
Unless the date to pay is this week no. I would still work with the original CPA because they appear to have taken the actions needed.
But, trust is required so if you have no trust in them doing what they said they have done then yes. Seek a new CPA and pay now.
