Ohio, IRS Late Filing, Tax Payment Penalties

1. Late Filing Penalty: For each month your tax return is filed after the April 15 deadline, you are charged a $50 late filing penalty or 10% of your taxes owed (whichever amount is greater). The penalty can go up to a $500 maximum.
2. Late Payment Penalty: For each month your taxes due are paid after the April 15 deadline, your amount is doubled (your unpaid tax plus interest). The interest rate on your unpaid tax is 3%.
You may qualify for an offer in compromise with your state tax agency and Authority General for a claim less than your taxes owed (not including penalties or interest) if you have at least one of these situations:

  • Economic hardship (including innocent spouse)
  • Doubt of Collectibility
  • Substantial probability that the claim (if collected) would be sent back to you as a refund under the respective agencies' statutes, rules, or regulations (only in limited instances)
3. IRS Penalties: Calculate and Estimate your potential IRS Income Tax Return Penalties.
