Tax Attorney Brian T. Loughrin successfully helps taxpayers stand up to the IRS.
While there are many reasons why individuals do not file their tax returns and the end result is rarely good. You can be given criminal penalties, including a prison term and hefty fines. In many cases, the IRS will assess monetary penalties and interest for the past-due taxes, making your situation even more difficult.
What Happens if I Don't File My Taxes?
The IRS has the ability to file a substitute tax return for you, but they may not have the full information regarding your exemptions and expenses, resulting in an overstatement of your tax liability. The moment your tax debt is figured out, the IRS begins the collection process. You may suffer a wage garnishment or a lien or levy in order to enforce payment.
Failure to file returns is not a problem that will go away and it will definitely get worse with time. By using a committed attorney at our office, you will have a firm that is dedicated to obtaining the best outcome possible in your case.
What Can Be Done About Past Due Returns?
The best course of action is to get your past returns correctly filed before the IRS starts to take action against you. It may lessen penalties and allows the IRS to know that you are taking effective steps on your taxes. In our office, Attorney Brian T. Loughrin will personally file your returns, not a paralegal.
After 10 years, the debt is wiped clean so the IRS will no longer go after you. It is not in the financial interest of the IRS to make this statute widely known. Therefore, many taxpayers with unpaid tax bills are unaware this statute of limitations exists. In addition, like most IRS rules, the nuances of the statute can be complex and difficult to understand. This article explains what tax debtors need to know to decide if it is financially advantageous for them to “wait out the IRS”. This option must be prepared for the IRS to leverage all its legal tactics to collect during that period.
