Do You Have Unfiled Tax Returns? Let Us Help You.

If you have failed to file a tax return, you are not alone. There are a number of reasons an individual or business may fail to file a required tax return: Many people put off filing simply because they do not have the money to pay what is owed. Others put it off in an effort to avoid facing the reality of their financial situations.

Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service is unforgiving. Regardless of the reason for your failure to file, you may be liable for all of the following:

Penalties are generally higher for taxpayers who fail to file returns versus those who file and fail to pay the taxes owed. We can help.

The Dangers Of Substitute Returns

If you do not file a tax return, the IRS may file a return on your behalf, resulting in far worse consequences for you. The IRS will base your "substitute for return" on information reported only by other sources, such as your W-2 and 1099s, not taking into account your real expenses or exemptions. Adverse consequences caused by the IRS may include:

  • Overstating your real tax liability by not including exemptions or deductions that you would have otherwise been entitled to take
  • Assessing an amount against you equal to your "overstated" tax liability, plus interest and penalties
  • Starting collection actions against you, which may result in placing liens or levies on property or bank accounts

Furthermore, taxes due from a substitute for return are not dischargeable in bankruptcy.
