Will the penalty and interest be waived if I show proof that I sent my payment timely, but the check has not cleared my financial institution?
Interest will not be waived. A waiver of penalty may be considered if you include full payment for the taxes and interest due. 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 address on the bill you have received.
