Individual Income Tax

I sent a check but it has not cleared my financial institution. Will the penalty and interest be waived if I show proof that I sent my payment on time?

Interest will not be waived. A waiver of penalty may be considered if you include full payment for the taxes and interest due and provide documentation such as:

  • A copy of your check register or a carbon copy of the check and a copy of the financial institution statement supporting that the funds were available at the time the check was sent.
  • A letter of explanation (be sure to include your account number/social security number)

Mail the above information and a copy of the bill to the billing address.
