End Your IRS Problems
Chapter 4: What to Do
if You Forgot to File
Some Tax Returns
Regardless of how complex you think your IRS
problem is ... it will most likely fall into one of two
You are behind on filing some tax returns
2. You are behind on paying taxes you owe the IRS.
That’s it. At the end of the day, you either owe the IRS
money, tax returns, or both.
In this chapter, we’ll deal with non-filers. The IRS
refers to taxpayers who have failed to file required tax
returns as “non-filers.” Rest assured that you are not
alone. In fact, millions of taxpayers each year choose
not to file.
Most taxpayers fall into the non-filing trap by
mistake, by either forgetting to file or by filing an
extension and never following up on it.
Some taxpayers, who know they owe money to the IRS
for a particular tax year, assume the IRS will not try
to collect taxes that they don’t know about, so these
taxpayers don’t file their tax returns.
