What Happens If I Don’t File Back Taxes?
If you have back taxes, it’s important to file a past-due tax return as soon as possible. If you don’t file or pay your taxes in full by the deadline, the IRS will begin to charge penalties on the amount you owe.

Types of penalties include:

Failure-to-File Penalty: If you miss your filing deadline and have not filed an extension, the IRS imposes a penalty of 5% of the amount of your unpaid taxes. The IRS will continue to charge an additional 5% every month for up to five months. There is also an additional late-filing penalty for returns that are filed more than 60 days after their due date.
Failure-to-Pay Penalty: If you don’t pay your taxes by the deadline, the IRS will charge a 0.5% penalty for each month that your payment is late. The maximum failure-to-pay penalty is 25%. Keep in mind, though, that interest will accrue until your tax liability is paid in full.

We specialize in preparing and filing back tax returns, late tax returns, amending tax returns, and helping taxpayers understand IRS (Internal revenue services) notices and letters. If your tax liability is large, we’ll negotiate with the IRS directly on your behalf by managing IRS Tax liabilities to offer-in-compromises or installment agreements, or other plans to pay off your tax debt. If necessary, we can also support you in filing for special tax provisions like penalty abatement, innocent spouse relief, or currently not collectible status. Tax debt relief is opted for by people who have somehow failed to file their returns, which in result have made them liable to pay a repayment of back taxes.
