thank you

In brief, you do not qualify for the First Time Abatement relief, therefore, the penalty is $195 per month, per partner, that the return is late. SEE BELOW:

---------------------------

Partnerships file IRS Form 1065, which carries a penalty of $195 a month per partner, up to a maximum of one year. The IRS counts partial months as full months, so waiting to file can be costly.

REFERENCE SOURCE:

----------------------------------

You may qualify for administrative relief from penalties for failing to file a tax return, pay on time, and/or to deposit taxes when due under the Service's First Time Penalty Abatement policy if the following are true:

  • You didn’t previously have to file a return or you have no penalties for the 3 tax years prior to the tax year in which you received a penalty.
  • You filed all currently required returns or filed an extension of time to file.
  • You have paid, or arranged to pay, any tax due.

In closing, if you do not require further assistance with this matter, I ask that you please take the time to positively rate my response by selecting 3 or more stars so that I can receive credit for assisting you. A 5 star rating is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
