Unfiled Tax Returns

All taxpayers have an obligation to file tax returns with the IRS and the state every year. Unfiled tax returns mean that you’ll be putting yourself at risk of harsh penalties, ranging from huge fines to fees, property and licensing consequences and even criminal tax charges. They’ll get you at some point, and when they do, you’ll be classified as a non-criminal non-filer or a criminal non-filer.

  • Non-criminal non-filer – When the IRS categorizes you as a non-criminal non-filer, you’ll be contacted by an IRS tax agent and be requested to file your tax returns within 30 days of notice.
  • Criminal non-filer – If you’re categorized as a criminal non-filer, the IRS will go ahead and charge you with a criminal offense for unfiled income tax returns.

If you’ve not been filing tax returns and want to file them before the IRS takes any adverse action, you should get the help of an experienced and knowledgeable tax attorney as soon as you can. In some unfiled tax return cases, the IRS or your state’s tax agency may also choose to file tax returns or prepare proposed assessments on your behalf. This substitute return or proposed assessment will not include deductions, exemptions, or credits that you would take for yourself, which ends up overstating your tax liability.

If the federal government has already created a substitute return for you, Delia Law will help you take the steps needed to contest and resolve the tax situation through a reconsideration. Delia Law is committed to helping you prepare your back taxes correctly and in getting your tax returns to the IRS for processing before any enforcement action is taken due to unfiled tax returns.
