How do I get a penalty waiver?

A taxpayer requesting a waiver of penalty must do so in writing and must explain their reason(s) for late payment of tax. If the taxpayer can demonstrate reasonable cause and meet the reasonable cause criteria as outlined in the Revenue Administrative Bulletin 2005-3 Penalty Provisions, the Department will waive the penalty charge.
