I fell behind when I came down with throat cancer and almost died. Two years later these IRS I am trying to clean up some messes but these IRS penalties are killing me even faster. What can I do?

Not sure where to begin or if it even matters. I want to pay my taxes but these penalties are ridiculous.

It sounds like you may have a valid medical defense as a reasonable cause for penalty abatement relief. You might find this blog post useful. ->

You don't state what kind of penalties were assessed so it is impossible to give you a comprehensive answer. You begin by stating what the penalties were for.
