Death and Taxes in Florida: What Happens When You Don't File Your Tax Return?

In today's society, many Florida taxpayers do not file their tax returns simply because they cannot pay their taxes. However, one of the most serious offenses an individual can commit, with respect to the IRS, is failure to file a tax return. Under Title 26 of the United States Code, Section 7203, it is a federal crime or offense for anyone to willfully fail to file a federal income tax return when required to do so by Internal Revenue laws or regulations. A person's willful failure to supply information or pay tax is also punishable as a crime under Section 7203. In some cases, a person convicted of these crimes may be imprisoned for up to 5 years.

Can Florida Residents Deduct Medical and Dental Expenses?

According to IRS Tax Tip 2011-21, if a taxpayer itemizes deductions on a Form 1040, a taxpayer may be able to deduct his or her expenses paid in the year 2010 for dental and medical care expenses. This would include dental or medical care expenses paid for the taxpayer, the taxpayer's spouse, and the taxpayer's dependents. For instance, taxpayers may be able to deduct medical care expenses only if the "total" medical care expenses for the year "exceed" 7.5% of total adjusted gross income (AGI).
