If you have one or more unfiled tax returns, the most important thing you can do right now to minimize penalties, interest, and fees associated with your back taxes is to file all current and delinquent returns

In an effort to improve efficiency and to collect more money, the IRS has improved its database of income transactions and increased its ability to identify non-filers. If you have yet to file back taxes, you rise to the top of the list of people the IRS wants to talk to. If you can file before the IRS gets to you, you stand a good chance of resolving your tax problems relatively painlessly.

If the IRS sends you a notice before you have filed your back tax returns, the likelihood of IRS punishment escalates and the cost of additional tax penalties grows exponentially.

If you have unfiled tax returns and back taxes, the IRS will get to you sooner or later. Sam’s Taxes does not provide legal services. Our aim is to help taxpayers before tax problems can escalate to the point of being classified as criminal.
