Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
It is at the discretion of the clearinghouse but the dishonored checks are frequently resubmitted to the bank. If it doesn't go through the second time, you will receive letter 608C - Dishonored Check Penalty Explained from the IRS. The penalty is 2% of the check balance, minimum $25.
You may request Penalty abatement if it was not your fault.
