Easy Guide to File a Late Tax Return
When was the last time you filed your taxes? Don’t be afraid to file past-due tax returns in fear of the Internal Revenue Service knocking on your door. The trick is, no matter how late the return is, file your tax returns before the IRS has the chance to send you a notice.
If you do not file your taxes on time, the IRS has ways of getting to you and demanding payment through phone calls, surprise visits, letters to your home, and if you continue to ignore these demands, they will give legal notices that say they will find other ways to collect from you.
If you still don’t comply, the IRS can also contact your employer and require him or her to cut out a certain percentage of your wage and send it directly to the IRS.
