You Must File Back Taxes, Even If Late
YOU NEeD TO FILE back taxes to analyze any unfiled tax returns and how much tax debt you owe. If you do not file, the IRS may complete a "Substitute for Return," which is not optimal as it is one tax return for all years. No federal exemptions or expenses will be applied and therefore increase your total tax liability. If the tax is assessed and the IRS completes a substitute return for you, they will begin collecting. This means they can place a tax levy on wages or bank accounts, or a federal tax lien on your personal personal property. Penalties and Interest will grow significantly and increase the total tax amount you owe the IRS if you didn't file and have taxes owed.
