Non-Filed Tax Returns - Unfiled Tax Returns

The IRS Will Find Non-filers

The IRS has a massive computer center which is very sophisticated. The IRS has the ability to find people who have not filed their tax returns. It is just a matter of time before they catch up with non-filers. The IRS is becoming very good at finding non-filers.

Some people simply do not take the idea of taxation very seriously. Some believe that they are over-taxed or they take the gamble that they won’t get caught.

Taxpayers who have unfiled tax returns may not be immediately found, but sooner or later the agency will find you. If you don’t file a tax return, the IRS can do so for you, this is called “Substitute for Return." A Substitute for Return (#SubstituteforReturn) is not a tax return. This IRS procedure is a tax assessment which will create a tax debt and will allow the IRS to enforce collection. A Substitute for Return will give you no deductions and will pound you with failure to file penalties. It will double your tax debt.

Haven’t Filed Your Tax Returns?

There are people who just don’t know how to fill out their tax return, or don’t file for financial reasons because they believe that they will owe the IRS. Maybe they had incomplete records or did not have the money to pay at the time. Whatever the reason filing your taxes and getting caught up with unpaid back taxes should be the highest priority.

For one thing, a taxpayer cannot settle their tax debt until they are compliant with their tax returns. This means that the previous six (6) years of tax returns must be filed. It is against the law not to file your tax returns.

The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief can help you resolve any past issues, file your back taxes and work with the IRS to settle your tax bill. We will work on your behalf to minimize your back tax debt and any penalties associated with your failure to file. Getting caught up on back taxes is the first step. If you voluntarily file your delinquent returns you will likely avoid further problems. The IRS will not allow you to use other tax debt relief options available to you, for example, an Offer in Compromise or Installment Agreement until your back taxes are filed. The agency can begin enforcement actions such as a wage garnishment, a bank levy, federal tax liens, etc. and you will not be able to stop the IRS until you are compliant.

If the IRS files your returns for you, they will do so in the best interest of the government, most likely you will owe taxes, interest and penalties. As we wrote above, your tax debt will most likely be double what you should owe. This will usually mean that you will likely get none of the deductions you are entitled to. Voluntary Disclosure Policy

1. This policy allows taxpayers to avoid action by the IRS by submitting their missing returns. All unfiled tax returns must be fully accurate to avoid further action by the IRS. The tax pros at Flat Fee Tax Relief can complete your back taxes for you.

2. Voluntarily inform the IRS of your failure to file and let them know that your income was earned from legal sources. The IRS in turn will give our teams a date that all of the missing tax returns must filed. This will action will provide you the breathing room necessary to settle.

3. File a correct tax return, make full payment and make the necessary disclosures as necessary

Remember, the IRS uses the computer matching and software programs to locate non-filers. The IRS Information Reporting System (IRP) matches W-2’s and 1099’s to the tax documents submitted.
