Have Past Due Returns? Call Brian T. Loughrin Tax Attorney

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.

Do you have an issue involving a past due tax return? Your first step is to contact Attorney Brian Loughrin to begin the process of overcoming your tax situation.

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?

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.
