Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis, Reminds Taxpayers Who Haven’t Filed By June 14 That Penalties Are Going Up

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR tells his readers who have not yet filed their 2018 tax returns that if they owe and haven’t paid by June 14th any penalty that was waived for under-withholding will no longer be honored and late filing penalties will be higher.

Fairhope, AL, June 27, 2019: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently posted a new article on his website entitled “Penalties Go Up For Late Tax Filers.” Mr. Willis tells taxpayers who have failed to file their taxes and they don’t live in an active war zone or have a later filing deadline due to federally declared natural disasters, that their time is up and they’ll pay dearly now.

Willis states, “Chronically late tax filers know all about the penalties the IRS charges.” He continues, “People who file late typically owe the IRS. It’s rarely the other way around.” He goes on to say that, “However, this year The Internal Revenue Service waived the penalties for those whose 2018 tax withholding and estimated tax payments fell short of their total tax liability for the year.”

As Willis explains, “According to the IRS, they had “seen an increasing number of taxpayers subject to estimated tax penalties, which apply when someone underpays their taxes. The number of people who paid this penalty jumped from 7.2 million in 2010 to 10 million in 2017, an increase of nearly 40 percent. The penalty amount varies but can be several hundred dollars.”

According to Willis though, “for some taxpayers waiver extensions are never long enough.” He goes on to say that despite the waivers and extensions, “ there are still taxpayers who have yet to file!” He adds, “It’s not surprising. There will always be people who will put off paying for years and have penalties and fees that exceed the taxes they owed. As a result of so many taxpayers who have yet to file, the IRS issued a warning that they will face higher tax penalties if they owe taxes and haven’t filed by June 14. It seems a two-month grace period just didn’t cut it for some folks.”

Willis goes on to point out, “There are a few exceptions to this penalty deadline. Some of those who have yet to file will be granted further penalty waiver if they live in a combat zone, such as members of the military do. Also, first time offenders, such as those taxpayers who have filed and paid on time and haven’t been assessed any penalties for the past three years can often quality to have the penalty abated.”
