Important: the IRS determined that late filing penalties for 2019 and 2020 Returns were abated or refunded if a taxpayer already claimed them. The IRS extended the penalty deadline so that they only began accruing for returns filed after September 30, 2022 instead of the regular due date. Any returns filed before this date did not face any penalties; returns filed after this due date will see a penalty beginning at usually 5% of the taxes due, up to 25%. See more details on tax penalties.
