Judge David Gustafson obliges us today with a playbook entry on Section 6651(a)(1) and (a)(3), the late-filing and late-paying add-ons, in Adalius Thomas, Docket No. 7724-20L, filed 6/17/21, an off-the-bencher.

Adalius, ex-Baltimore Raven and NE Patriot, was swindled in the Green Gas alternate fuel tax credit dodge., the dénoument of which I did not blog for some unaccountable reason. He got tackled with $584K in tax, plus the 20% negligence chop and the aforesaid add-ons. IRS drops the negligence chops, as Adalius was well and truly swindled. But the fact he was swindled doesn’t excuse that he filed three weeks late, nor paid up nearly four (count ’em, four) years late.

Adalius never got the NITL, so the enhanced 1% per month add-on didn’t hit when IRS claimed, but only after Appeals was finished with Adalius’ case. So Adalius gets to contest de novo in Tax Court. The add-ons came after the FPAA demolished the Green Gassers, and there was no SNOD.

Judge Gustafson explains how Section 6651(a)(1) and (a)(3) work together, at Transcript, pp. 21-22. I cannot copy the language, as the text of the transcript is in a PDF format that is not capable of being copied-and-pasted. Once again, DAWSON proves its uselessness.
