What To Know About Unfiled Tax Returns
Nonfilers can face a host of penalties and fees for failing to file their returns. These consequences will likely depend on how long your return was left unfiled and how many unfiled returns you have. In general, the IRS will apply interest on the tax due from a missing return, meaning the longer a taxpayer takes to pay the debt, the more interest it will accrue and the more they will owe.
If you know you have an unfiled return, it’s best to get on top of the situation before the IRS contacts you. If you are unsure of how to file your taxes or have a complex tax situation, you should work with a skilled tax professional who can assist you in gathering the information and documentation you need to file an outstanding return.
If you wait too long, the IRS may file your return, which can result in a huge tax liability. When the IRS files a return on your behalf, they will not include any tax breaks like deductions or exemptions, resulting in a higher tax debt. Additionally, they will include interest and other fees into their calculations. The resulting inflated tax bill can have a huge impact on your finances.
