What are the consequences of failing to file a tax return?

Nearly anyone who earned an income has a duty to file a tax return. If your income exceeds the standard deduction published by the IRS for a given tax year, then you have a duty to file a return. In many cases, taxpayers who make a low or modest income will receive a refund after filing a return. Some people believe that, if they don’t owe the IRS money, they don’t need to file a tax return, but this isn’t true. The fact is that failure to file a tax return is a federal tax crime, whether you owe money to the IRS or the IRS owes money to you. If you were entitled to a tax refund for the year that you failed to file a tax return, you have a limited amount of time to file before that refund is gone forever. Taxpayers have three years to get the refund they’re owed by filing a return for that year. After three years, the refund is lost forever. Additionally, after three years the IRS will also refuse to apply the amount of the refund to any unpaid taxes.

Take care of unfiled tax returns before it’s too late

If you file the returns before the IRS makes contact with you, many times the IRS will not refer your case to the Criminal Investigations Division for prosecution. However, once the IRS determines that you have unfiled tax returns, it becomes much more challenging to rectify the problem without facing major fines and, in some cases, criminal charges. Should you neglect to file a return, the IRS may create what’s known as a Substitute for Returns, or SFR. The SFR will not include any deductions or exemptions you may have otherwise been entitled to include on your return. Then, the IRS will calculate interest and penalties based on the tax bill that the SFR generates. This means that, not only will you owe more based on the SFR, but you’ll owe even more in interest and penalties than you would had you filed your own return with all exemptions and deductions you deserve.
