Unfiled Taxes

The penalty for unfiled taxes or failing to file your annual unclaimed taxes often takes effect on April 16th each year. In the past, a late filing would result in an immediate penalty being charged. You would be liable for fines up to one thousand dollars. If you file late but still pay the tax by April 15, you may still owe a smaller penalty, but if you do not pay the unclaimed tax at least by then, you could be hit with a second penalty.

Some people are not aware that there are additional penalties that can be applied if they do not go back and file their taxes within the six years. If a taxpayer files electronically and does not include an address or social security number, they are supposed to give proof of identity within the appropriate forms. However, some people do not use proper filenames when completing these types of applications. If they do this and do not provide proof of identification within six years, they can face fines and not be able to apply for refunds for up to six years.

Other consequences stem from failing to send in the appropriate paperwork within three years. You must file the appropriate paper forms, not just the federal form. You may also be required to send in a state form if the state you live in requires it. In the case of state forms, you must file the appropriate forms with your state tax office instead of with the IRS. If the state tax office does not receive your paperwork within the appropriate time period, they will simply refer you to the IRS for follow up. If you have filed a federal tax return and have not sent it to the IRS, you must still send it within the three years.

Taxpayers who receive jail time because of their inability to pay their taxes have other options available to them as well. unfiled federal and state income tax returns can be placed in the public domain. For public domain tax records, the taxpayers do not need to obtain a court order in order to access them. This means that if you receive jail time due to your inability to pay your taxes, you do not have to worry about having your financial information revealed to the public. Your financial records will not be available to those people or businesses that do not follow federal and state privacy laws.

Another option for taxpayers who have received unfiled tax returns is to hire an specialist to assist them in completing the return and sending it to the IRS. An specialist will charge a fee for his or her services. The fee typically covers the cost of filing the return, preparing the return and making corrections to errors. If the taxpayer does not have enough funds available to pay for legal assistance, he or she may have to file a claim for tax relief from the IRS. Each individual taxpayer’s circumstances are different and it is impossible to determine what his or her best course of action will be.

The IRS will also pursue taxpayers who have received letters of default from their bank. A letter of default is when a bank is not sure that the taxpayer will be able to repay their loan on time. When banks refuse to help taxpayers in the repayment process, they may issue a foreclosure notice. A foreclosure can lead to jail time and a number of other financial problems for those who have received unfiled tax returns and have been unable to repay the bank.
