If you have not filed one or more tax returns, you are probably very worried and scared about what will happen next. The longer you wait to catch up your returns and pay any back taxes owed, the worse your situation becomes. If you don’t file returns voluntarily, the IRS may file a “Substitute Return” for you, which will not give you credit for deductions and exemptions you may be entitled to receive. You will be assessed for any taxes owed and receive a Notice of Delinquency proposing a tax assessment. If you do not file a return within 90 days or file a petition in Tax Court, the IRS will begin a series of actions against you, which can include:
If you have received a Notice of Delinquency, the worst thing you can do is ignore it. Penalties and interest will be added to the amount you already owe and you could face possible criminal prosecution. We know how frightening this can be and we want to help!
