Why should the IRS remove the tax penalties?
The determination of whether you acted with reasonable cause and in good faith is made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account all facts and circumstances. Generally, the most important factor is the extent of your effort to assess your proper tax liability. Circumstances that may show reasonable cause and good faith include an honest misunderstanding of fact or law that is reasonable, including your experience, knowledge, and education.
An isolated computational or transcriptional error generally is not inconsistent with reasonable cause and good faith. Reliance on an information return or on the advice of a professional tax advisor or an appraiser does not necessarily demonstrate reasonable cause and good faith. Similarly, reasonable cause and good faith is not necessarily indicated by reliance on facts that, unknown to you, are incorrect. Reliance on an information return, professional advice, or other facts, however, constitutes reasonable cause and good faith if, under all the circumstances, such reliance was reasonable and you acted in good faith.
Reasonable cause and good faith ordinarily is not indicated by the mere fact that there is an appraisal of the value of property. Other factors to consider include the methodology and assumptions underlying the appraisal, the appraised value, the relationship between appraised value and purchase price, the circumstances under which the appraisal was obtained, and the appraiser's relationship to the taxpayer or to the activity in which the property is used.
Your reliance on erroneous information reported on a Form W-2, Form 1099, or other information return indicates reasonable cause and good faith, provided you did not know or have reason to know that the information was incorrect. Generally, you would know, or you have reason to know, that the information on an information return is incorrect if such information is inconsistent with other information reported or otherwise furnished to you, or with your knowledge of the transaction. This knowledge includes, for example, the your knowledge of the terms of your employment relationship.
