IRS rules no abatement of first-tier excise tax penalty on private foundation’s undistributed income

In a Technical Advice Memorandum (TAM) 201129050, IRS has determined that the first-tier excise taxes due under Code Sec. 4942 on a trust’s undistributed income for the years at issue shouldn’t be abated under Code Sec. 4962 because the trust failed to establish that it acted with reasonable cause and not with willful neglect.
