Abatement of IRS Penalties and Interest
The Internal Revenue Service adds insult to injury by piling on stiff penalties and interest when taxpayers are unable to pay — or disputing — the underlying tax debt. Boelter & Associates works on all fronts to (a) halt the accrual of interest, (b) rescind tax penalties and (c) challenge the original tax obligation.

Reducing or Eliminating Penalty and Interest
Arthur H. Boelter has practiced in the field of tax law for over 35 years and holds an advanced degree (LL.M.) in Taxation. Before private practice, he worked many years as an IRS trial lawyer and collections officer. His in-depth knowledge of the Internal Revenue Service enables him to aggressively challenge IRS penalties:
- Failure to file
- Late payment
- Understatement of income tax
- Understatement of estate and gift taxes
- Tax fraud
- Trust fund recovery penalty (individual liability for failure of the company to pay employment taxes)
Penalties range depending on the IRS infraction, and interest accrues from the date the tax was due. It is not uncommon for penalties and interest to compound to more than underlying tax owed. Unpaid, it can lead to liens and seizure of assets, wage garnishment or levies on your bank account.
Arthur H. Boelter exhausts every means to clear these surcharges. He prevails on the IRS to stop the accrual through administration appeals, and works to prove that the late filing or underpayment was an honest error, that the IRS improperly applied the penalty.
