How do I request a penalty waiver?

Penalty may be waived on an assessment if you can show reasonable cause for your failure to pay on time. Reasonable cause includes serious illness or death, a fire or natural disaster, or criminal acts against you. Requests must be in writing. Documentation may be requested to substantiate the reason for your penalty waiver request. Reference RAB 2005-3
